Giovani da Balduccio was an expatriate Tuscan from Pisa who carried the Tuscan Gothic to Bologna and Milan. His main work in Milan is the shrine of St Peter Martyr. It was modelled on the shrine of St Dominic made at Bologna by the workshop of Nicola Pisano in 1260-65. Giovanni da Balduccio, however, made a number of Gothic improvements including the addition to the lid of a fine Gothic tabernacle.
