Un dono veramente regale. L’arca in argento e cristallo per il corpo di san Carlo Borromeo (con due intermezzi)
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
The body of St. Carlo borromeo has been resting in the scurolo of the Duomo since 1638 in a silver and crystal casket, a gift from the Spanish kings Philip III and Philip IV. Although very well known, the casket has not been studied so far, and the few known documents concerning it have not received due attention. the author traces what is already known and, thanks to many new documents, reconstructs the process with which, since 1611, the silver and crystal casket was designed, built, paid and finally donated. the study also examines other artifacts and works of art somehow related to the St. Carlo casket: the main altar of the church of San Gottardo in Corte and the tronetto for the display of the Holy Sacrament in Duomo.
