Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
On the occasion of the anniversary of its foundation in 1107, a series of contributions have appeared about the cathedral of Cremona, trying to clarify the long-standing problem of the chronology of the building, especially in relation to the possible damage suffered in the 1117 earthquake. Among the many problems, particular attention should be paid to the system of protiri currently present in the building: the one on the façade and the one in correspondence with the front of the north transept. It is necessary to return to the problem in order to review also some hypothesis that the Author had then put forward trying to cross the scarce indications provided by documentary sources with the philological analysis of the single sculptures and the historical events that concern the city in the 13th century. The result is a completely new picture, as regards the chronology of the protiri and, above all, an attempt has been made to clarify the reasons that have determined even within a few decades the double order typology of the façade. In addition to this, the analysis of the sculptures has drawn attention to a completely unexpected scenario concerning the activity in Cremona of Benedetto Antelami’s workshop, but also the roles played by Frederick II, Oberto Pallavicino and the Comune di Popolo.
