ABSTRACT
It is the aim of this paper to examine the main results of an ongoing research [1] on artistic work of Italian architect Giovanni Maria Galli Bibiena the Younger (1694-1777). He was second-born son of famous set designer Ferdinando (1657-1743), from celebrated Bibiena family whose members excelled as quadratura painters and theatrical designers within the span of four generations. In particular the analysis, based on an incisive examination of archival sources, focuses on his work at the service of some important clients in the Kingdom of Naples where, after a brief stay in some European Courts, since 1743 he was architect and professor of Architecture for thirty years.
Purpose of research is making contribution to worldwide studies on Bibiena dynasty introducing this highly-qualified artist whose career has never been investigated before by a scientific approach.

Keywords: Bibiena, Giovanni Maria, Naples, Pignatelli, Sansevero
