San Marino – 2 Euro, Donato Bramante, 2014

Coin dedicated to 500th Anniversary of the Death of Donato “Donnino” di Angelo di Pascuccio, Brilliant Uncirculated. Donato Bramante (1444 – 11 March 1514) was an Italian architect, who introduced Renaissance architecture to Milan and the High Renaissance style to Rome, where his plan for St. Peter’s Basilica formed the basis of design executed by Michelangelo. His Tempietto (San Pietro in Montorio) marked the beginning of the High Renaissance in Rome (1502) when Alexander VI appointed him to build a sanctuary that allegedly marked the spot where Peter was crucified.
