The well-known members of the Dattaro family (also called Pizzafuoco) worked in Cremona as architects since the first half of the Sixteenth century. Dattaro family architectural production in Cremona and Giuseppe activities in Mantua (1595-1590) have already been studied; little attention was instead paid to Giuseppe architectural tasks prior to his arrival at Vincenzo I Gonzaga court. recent archival researches have highlighted contacts between Giuseppe and brescia starting from the Seventies of the Sixteenth century; Giuseppe’s letters and drawings were found in Gambara family archives. Gambara are a feudal lords family with extensive properties in the areas between brescia and Cremona; their careful marriage policy made them one of the most important and powerful families of Venetian mainland territories. the letters that Giuseppe wrote to Nicolò Gambara describe his stays in Pomponesco, Maleo, Sabbioneta, up to Casale Monferrato; these documents provide interesting  information about his professional background before arriving in Mantua. Nicolò also involved Giuseppe in some bresciaarchitectural projects, first of all the design of Pontevico church. Pizzafuoco’s Mantuan years are also discussed with short notes from the rich Gonzaga archive. the paper aims at updating the biography of the architect, recognizing the importance of Gambara family patronage and, in general, the role of brescia in the architectural context of the Northern part of Italy during the second half of the Sixteenth century.
