Precious Sculptures : Sacred Gold and Silver in Lazio from the 13th to the 18th centuries Paperback
Edited by Benedetta Montevecchi
Concise catalogue for the eponymous exhibition organised by the Vatican Museums in collaboration with the Superintendency for Artistic and Ethno-anthropological Historical Heritage of Latium, dedicated to ancient sacred goldsmithery in the region.
The works in the exhibition - from diocesan collections and from the churches of Latium - are mostly on display for the first time and have emerged as a result of major research and documentation work.
Selected on the basis of the value of the metals, their sculptural quality, and especially their refinement, the rediscovered treasures represent six centuries of production, from the Medieval age to late Rococo.
