Abstract

The article examines the equestrian group of Oldrado da Tresseno, placed on the facade of Milan's Town Hall as a seal of completion of the building work (1233). The monument, of considerable artistic and cultural interest (it is the first equestrian group representing not a sovereign, but a living politician), is based on Roman models (or considered such), such as the Marcus Aurelius of the Campidoglio in Rome or the Regisole of Pavia. The massive use of 'spoila' around sculpture is aimed at underlining the continuity between the Roman Empire and the new forms of communal government. It is thus affirmed that it is the Commune of Milan and not Emperor Frederick II who is the true heir to the imperial government.
