In early modern age wood carving has produced in Sicily high quality works of art directly or indirectly related to architecture, frequently forming also a first area of training for craftsmen who have then achieved the status of architect. This study intends to investigate and highlight relations and exchanges between wood carving and the world of architecture, as well as the circumstances, the ways and tools that produced these contacts, through the analysis of a specific type, that of Tabernacles read as real micro-architectures, and the observation of a series of successful examples carved between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
