Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] In the Museo d'Arte Antica of the Castello Sforzesco (Milan) a reconnaissance activity is underway dedicated to the conspicuous deposit of the terracottas. A number of important discoveries have emerged, in particular with regard to decorative terracottas from the palace known as Banco Mediceo, designed by the architect Antonio Averulino known as Filarete. The identification of decorative terracottas, considered to be dispersed, of which it is now possible to make close comparisons with the Medallions with busts of emperors, coming from the same place, object of a recent restoration, is of considerable importance. The conservative intervention has shown above all the technique of execution offering elements to frame the cultural and chronological ambit of these artifacts. The museum's archival sources, consulted during the reconnaissance activity, highlighted the terracotta acquisition events where the art market played a decisive role
