Mauro Codussi (1440–1504) was an Italian architect of the early-Renaissance, active mostly in Venice. The name is also rendered as Coducci. He was one of the first to bring the classical style of the early renaissance to Venice to replace the prevalent Gothic style.
Born near Bergamo about 1440, he is first recorded in Venice in 1469, where he was working on the church of San Michele in Isola on the island between Venice and Murano, where Venice now has its cemetery. Little is known of his early experience and training.
