The monumental statue of St. Matthias is located on the north side of the Milan Cathedral. the sculpture was carved between 1810 and 1811 by the bolognese artist Giacomo De Maria. this is one of the interventions for completion of the Duomo, sponsored and encouraged by Napoleon. In order to complete such a huge project the patrons had to employ also artists from other Italian Academies of Fine Arts, like De Maria, who was also regularly taking part to the local fine arts exhibitions. the discovery of accounting documents and letters made it possible to reconstruct the story of the commission from the terracotta maquette to the plaster model of reduced size, up to the finished statue. In the background, the Milan of this period where the artist lived and worked for almost a year, intertwining his life with those of his pupils Luigi Manfredini and Giovanni Putti, who were engaged in the decoration of the Arco del Sempione at the same time. De Maria’s candidacy was strongly supported by Camillo Pacetti, professor of sculpture at the brera Academy.
