John Venipont (Giovanni d’Innsbruck)
A cryptically named German architect of the Campanile or Leaning Tower of Pisa.
Some authors1 have this architect named as “Giovanni Tedesco” – i.e John German or “Giovanni d’Innspruck” – John of Innsbruck. Given that the ancient name for Innsbruck is “Oenipons”, I think Evelyn was was using an Anglicised form of this architect’s name. . —GS
