Recensione di Cometa M. (2017), Il Trionfo della morte di Palermo. Un’allegoria della modernità, Quodlibet, Macerata

Risultato della ricerca: Review articlepeer review


Michele Cometa’s book analyzes the fifteenth-century fresco Il Trionfo della Morte (The Triumph of Death), conceived for the courtyard of the Ospedale Grande e Nuovo of Palazzo Sclafani in Palermo and currently housed in the Regional Gallery of Palazzo Abatellis, in the same city. The approach is inspired by Visual Culture studies: there are historical reconstructions and references to previous critical analyses of the pictorial work, but the fresco is interpreted in a new way, considering its narrative structure, thematic clusters as well as the allegories, the medieval topoi and the different cultural influences present in Sicily at the time.
