The essay studies the description of the triumphal apparatus created by the guild of goldsmiths and silversmiths of Palermo on the occasion of the celebrations in 1711 for the victory of Philip V in Brihuega. An account of these pieces of ephemeral architecture was published by Pietro Vitale in his Chronica of the same year, and this allows us to place the work in the wider artistic and cultural environment of Palermo during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
