Thanks to his successful restoration of Leonardo da Vinci’s wall paintings in Sala delle Asse at Milan Castle on Luca Beltrami’s behalf, in 1903 the painter and restorer Ernesto Rusca (1862-1947) was asked by the architect Cesare Nava to decorate the just restored cathedral of Rivolta d’Adda (11th-12th century). Rusca painted a Coronation of the Virgin Mary between Saint Sigismond and Albert Quadrelli in Neo-Fifteenth Century style on false mosaic background. In 1904 the architect Cecilio Arpesani requested Rusca to decorate the Neo-Romanesque church of Santissimo Redentore in Legnano but only in 1908 the painter carried out a Transfiguration of Jesus on false mosaic background to comply with wishes. This work is a copy of the Transfiguration by Beato Angelico in San Marco Museum, Florence. On behalf of the architect Gaetano Moretti Rusca painted third false mosaic in the apse of Saint Peter’s Romanseque church in Gallarate (11th-12th century). His Christ blessing seated on his throne derives from models of Neo-Fifteenth Century style. Ernesto Rusca was one of the most talented ‘interpreter’ of historicism architects requests and his work plainly went along with the ‘tendency style’ which considered the false mosaic particularly fitted to the Romanesque and Neo-Romanesque buildings in Lombardy.
