After the time of Baroque, architecture of the second half of the 18 th century in Italy did not come to any common style, a new age was represented by a number of artists with different tastes. Some of them sided with the Academy, others worked in European countries, where they were welcomed as heirs of antiquity and the Renaissance. Italian architects did not appear in the mainstream of international styles. Their goal was to preserve the uniqueness of national and the restoration of the historical vector from antiquity and the Renaissance to Baroque. That is why Italian Neo-classicism became the style in which a master wasn’t an imitator of antiquity, as it was in other European countries. He used an analytical approach to the study of the Renaissance. Influence of the Renaissance on these architects can be divided into two areas. The first area was introduced by the so-called “Florentine party” — a group of architects who came to Rome from Florence. As inheritors of Mannerist, these masters used the devices of Bartolomeo Ammannati and others. Among them there were the architects Ferdinando Fuga and Alessandro Galilei who realized his projects in England. Another way was to continue the building of the great Renaissance monuments. For example, Luigi Vanvitelli made projects of the renovation of the dome of St. Peter’s Basilica and of the reconstruction of the Church of Santa Maria degli Angeli in Rome. Both ways underline the general mood of the time — saving the hereditary connection between the present and the Renaissance.
