As sole designer from 1817 to 1832, he prepared hundreds of settings for opera and dance and conceived the redecoration of the theatre's interior (1829–30), including its magnificent chandelier. His name is particularly linked with the romantic tradition of opera (Rossini, Bellini, Donizetti, Pacini) and the dramatic ballets of Taglioni and Viganò. The chief characteristics of his style were asymmetrical architectural design, historical verisimilitude, suggestive lighting, a lively sense of colour, ‘pavilions’ with richly decorated curtains, drapes, friezes, mouldings, and spacious cellars or subterranean spaces with suggestively lit vaulted ceilings. Sanquirico also designed gardens, funerals, and Ferdinando I's coronation ceremony . - Alfredo Cristiano Keil (1850 – 1907) was a Portuguese romantic composer and painter.
