Recoveries and restorations in San Giorgio su Legnano: Bernardino Campi and Giovanni Battista Armenini’s Assunta (with a note on Filippo Abbiati)
Through the examination of documents and sources of the time, the author could identify the Assumption of the Virgin on board in the parish church of San Giorgio su Legnano – a small town not far from Milan, on the route to Varese – as the remaining part of an altarpiece made according to a project by (and with notable interventions of) Bernardino Campi and Giovanni Battista Armenini, painter and art writer from Faenza. Until now, only one of work by Armenini was known, another Assumption of the Virgin, now part of the collection of the Pinacoteca Civica in Faenza. This painting is also taken into consideration in the article, as the author analyzes its style with the intention of tracing its sources and proposing a possible date of execution. In the appendix, another painting from the church of San Giorgio su Legnano, formerly attributed to Andrea Pozzo, is more properly identified as the work of Filippo Abbiati, thus suggesting further thoughts on local patronage between late-17th and early 18th Century.
