Architettura e arte a Geraci (XI - XVI secolo)

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

[automatically translated] The study reconstructs through new archival sources the origins of Geraci, a small Sicilian town, once the seat of the count's court of Ventimiglia; it is presented throughout the city's history and that of the individual monuments, pausing deliberately medieval age, perhaps the period of greatest "shine" for the city, of which there are signs of a strong economy and a status no longer reached in the following centuries ; yet at the end of the fifteenth century they are witnesses of this cultural climate some extraordinary reliquaries in architectural structure and the Renaissance portal of the church of Santa Maria Gate.
