Unpublished documents allow to know the collecting choices of don Lorenzo II Gioeni, Marquis of Giuliana, Baron of Burgio, Contessa and Aidone and Prince of Castiglione, related to the Colonna for the marriage of his daughter Isabella with Marcantonio V of Paliano. The sicilian nobleman surrounded himself with interesting artefacts, addressing, through his procurator, Francesco Setaiolo, to skilled artists, such as the silversmiths Diego Turbolo and the more famous Francesco Ruvolo, a valid exponent of Palermo Baroque. On Gioeni’s death, as the inventories examined show, his rich collections, consisting mainly of precious furniture, silverware, textiles and paintings, were inherited by his daughter and son-in-law Marcantonio V and transferred, except in some cases of dispersion or sale, from Sicily to Rome.
