Quadratura painting of seventeenth century Spanish Lombardy didn’t have great success in researches, differently from the one of the following century. Despite silence of sources, during all the seventeenth century, in these areas, quadratura, preceded by important examples in Renaissance, proves to be rich of testimonies. For the second part of the seventeenth century particularly, before the genre, in its gradually declination towards barocchetta direction, arrived at the annulment of architectonic elements, it’s possible to identificate a few artists: Giovanni Ghisolfi, Bernardo Racchetti, the Mariani and Francesco Villa are the artists that we found mentioned and in some cases documented. In this environment a particularly emblematic figure is Francesco Villa, a famous painter of the seventeenth century, how exemplified by Angelo Porro’s declarations and by his call from the Duke of Mantua for the loggia decorations of Marmirolo. This research intends to focus on some biographic aspects of Villa’s life and at the same time reconstruct his catalogue, with some unreleased attributions attempted by stylistical elements. Particularly these attributions concern Cesare Maderno’s Palace and the Baldironi one at Lissone. At the same time, here are revealed some facts emerged from documents, concerning the activity at Genua and at Omodei Palace at Cusano Milanino and are recovered informations concerning his work at Pavia Certosa, attested by the sources.
