The design for the Palazzo Ducale of Modena has been attributed to Avanzini, though between 1631 and 1634 Girolamo Rainaldi played a role in the initial plans. There appear to have been comments made on the construction by Borromini, Pietro da Cortona and Bernini. The latter viewed progress during a stop in Modena in 1665. Camillo-Guarino Guarini also played a role after 1680.
Other works by Avanzini include:
- Ducal palace of Sassuolo
- Palazzo Vescovile (Bishop's Palace) in Reggio Emilia
- Palazzo Busetti in Reggio Emilia (attributed)
- Chiesa dei Santi Carlo e Agata in Reggio Emilia (attributed)
