the Bride and Groom sarcophagus - RomePope Julius III in 1550 assigned the initial design of the building to Jacopo Barozzi da Vignola in 1551–1553. The nymphaeum and other garden structures, however, were designed by Bartolomeo Ammanati, all under the supervision of Giorgio Vasari. Michelangelo also worked there.
