Addenda a Bramante e le scale: la cripta del Duomo di Pavia
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
There is wide agreement that the advanced and innovative crypt of the Cathedral of Pavia built in the years 1488-1492, is one of the masterpieces of Bramante’s Lombard period. Little attention has been given to the staircases ingeniously fitted to the great thick walls between the crypt’s lateral pillars and the foundations of the two sacresties. Of special interest is the staircase that leads to the northern sacresty. Y shaped, the staircase’s first ramp reaches a polygonal landing from which, on the left, a ramp ascends to the level of the northern sacresty and, on the right, a ramp descends to the sacresty’s crypt, forming an angled view of both. It is likely that the corresponding upper squared spiral stair, like the corner staircases of the transect of the Milan Cathedral, were proposed by Bramante.
