He came to Rome in 1588, and started working for his uncle, Domenico Fontana. In 1603, he completed the façade of Santa Susanna. His design broke with the Mannerist style, and announced the new Baroque style. The façade of Santa Susanna and the dome of Sant'Andrea della Valle are considered his masterpieces.
He started building the Palazzo Barberini, which was completed after his death by Bernini.
Maderno is buried in San Giovanni dei Fiorentini.
