Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[Autom. eng. transl.] A group of ceiling tablets from the town hall of Caravaggio (now in storage at the Civic Museum of Cremona) are studied in their material, stylistic and heraldic components. They come from the ancient Casa Aratori (later Palazzo Comunale di Caravaggio) and were painted for the union of Fermo Aratori, ancestor of the mother of the painter Caravaggio, with Giustina Baruffi. Built in the last decade of the fifteenth century, they can be divided into two series intended for two different ceilings by local shops next to the master of San Bernardino in Caravaggio and the master of the vault of the baptismal chapel in San Martino in Treviglio.
