Starting from the ancient devotion to St. Francis of Paola in Sicily we analyze the most significant works of decorative art dedicated to the Holy Founder of the Order of Minims. From the busts or groups in terracotta, such as that of the late sixteenth century attributed to Vincenzo Gagini of the church dedicated to him in Palermo, to the wooden sculptures, the rarest and most precious works of goldsmith or decorated with coral.
