This paper focuses on the sculpted decoration of the city gates of Milan during the 14th century. The different theories about the iconography and the chronology of the sculpted groups are considered here from an historical perspective. The aim is to demonstrate that the decoration was commissioned by Azzone Visconti before his death (1339). Moreover, iconographic reasons raise the question about the responsibilities of the project (that unfortunately was changed in progress): besides Giovanni di Balduccio, the artist who materially made three of the six tabernacles, the participation of Giotto, who probably was in Milan between 1335 and 1337, can’t be excluded. In the same way, the influence of some exponents of the Dominican Order (in primis Galvano Fiamma) should be considered. The magnificence of the original project for the sculpted decoration of the city gates of Milan makes it an outstanding expression of civic identity, even more so if compared with the Italian city gates of the same period of time.
