Un’inedita Assunzione pavese. Riflessioni sulle dinamiche di scelta dei soggetti iconografici nel monastero di Santa Maria Teodote nel tardo Quattrocento digital
Anno: 2021
This article discusses a hitherto unpublished fresco from the Benedictine women’s monastery of Santa Maria Teodote in Pavia. The nunnery, of Lombard origin, was extensively renovated in the last uarter  of the 15th century, as it joined the Cassinese Congregation (Congregation of Santa Giustina in Padua, one of the major 15th century reform movements among Benedictines in Europe). In addition to  other works, including the famous oratory of San Salvatore completely frescoed in the early 16th century, a refectory was built in which an Assumption/Coronation of the Virgin was painted. This latter fresco, which came to light in 2018, shows an iconography that is very similar to paintings created by artists working for the male and female Franciscan Observance in Lombardy. This paper, besides rising the question of the commission of such a fresco, whose location in a refectory is highly atypical, presents comparisons with artistic choices made in other Benedictine women’s monasteries in Pavia and Lombardy during the same period: the nuns of Santa Maria Teodote were probably the commissioners of works characterised by originality and great modernity.
