Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

[automatically translated] The monument to Philip V was examined according to the "global" method of art history, namely from reflection on materials and techniques, the styles, the iconography and sull'iconologia. This monument is an example of Baroque urban design with the presence of stylistic elements of classicist matrix. the most important figures of the sculptors, namely Carlo D'Aprile and Gaspare Guercio were analyzed, who were involved in the construction of the monument erected in 1661 in honor of King Philip IV. Following the Bourbons of 1848 the statue of King Philip IV was destroyed and was replaced with that of King Philip V. Hence the new name of the monument. Was published, finally, a comment written in 1663 by Francis Angelo Road this work interprets this appreciative of Spanish power.
