Diamond shaped bosses in 15th and 16th century in SicilyDiamond shaped bosses are to be found in many Sicilian buildings dating from the 15th and 16th centuries, whether as a means of covering extensive surfaces or, not less significantly, as a decorative element in doorways, windows and niches inside the spandrels supporting domes, both in religious and civil architecture. This study takes into account certain stylistic and constructive aspects in a number of buildings, such as the shape and dimension of the pieces, the way they are placed, the materials employed; these details, together with the dates of construction, make it possible to observe differences and similarities, and (especially in the Trapani area where such examples are more frequent) help to outline probable connections and influences between the builders and their patrons.
