Simone del Pollaiolo (1457–1508) is a well known Florentine architect who was commonly known as Il Cronaca (The Chronicle).
Simone was later given his nickname Il Cronaca. The reason for such nickname has much to do with his style and is explained by Giorgio Vasari. Simone del Pollaiolo, in order to learn more of the architectural art, marched to Rome around 1470 to observe the old ruins. On his return to Florence he made very meticulous and reasoned stories and descriptions of his observations, which were described like a chronicle.
