This study analyzes many aspects of Giuseppe Bossi’s attitude and interest towards the gems, in the broader Lombard glyptic context, and virtually reassembles his consistent and very varied collection of gems, ancient and modern, totally dispersed. The Author recover and investigate every kind of evidence to reconstruct Bossi’s relations with the glyptic world: his knowledge, the considerations on the art of engraving hard stones among the ancients and at his times, familiarity with famous engravers, from which he is portrayed, commissions and purchases gems. Bossi understands gems and uses them as seals in letters, he chooses them as a gift, even he sells them. The texts of glyptic art in the exceptional Bossi’s library are also examined for the first time, to prove how and how much the artist is informed and demonstrates mastery in the glyptic field.
