This essay is focused on the Barrai family, a group of stonecutters operating in Cagliari between 15th and 16th centuries. The family played a leading role in the construction and diffusion of star-shaped rib vaults in the late Sardinian 16th centuries religious architecture. The study attempts to systematize available evidence and information about the Barrai family in order to provide a starting point for further investigation. New hypotheses about the family’s genealogy and activity during the second half of the 16th century are also explored.
