Abstract

[automatically translated] This is a card catalog of a wooden sculpture of the late sixteenth century, signed by Ferraro and painted by Nicolò Buttafoco in 1600 (Corleone, Mother Church). The work is a fine example of Sicilian sculptural art and the connections with the contemporary artistic culture of Mannerist mold. Thanks to recent documentary discoveries and to the restoration - conducted within the admirable Artifice project, funded by the Cariplo Foundation and with the support of local authorities - has been possible to trace the signatures of the two authors and return the group to fruition and greater knowledge of the artistic Sicilian heritage.
