Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The life of Antonio Contri from Ferrara, painter and detector of wall paintings written by Girolamo Baruffaldi, the letters on the restoration of the canon Luigi Crespi to Count Francesco Algarotti, the fundamental text by Leopoldo Cicognara on the detachment of fresco paintings edited on the Florence Anthology in May of 1825. These are the seven-nineteenth-century sources that are investigated in Stacchi and tears of frescoes between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries to signify the intense cultural climate that from the second half of the eighteenth century welcomed and characterized the first experiments of detachment and tearing of wall paintings in Italy, already favoring a heated critical debate between supporters and detractors of the extractive practice that will accompany the technical progress until the second half of the twentieth century.
