Abstract

Vasari's scattered information on the destroyed Villa Soranza places Anselmo Canneri there as a frescoist as well as Veronese and Zelotti. Comparison of eleven fresco fragments of 1551 from Soranza with contemporary works by the three artists confirms the presence of all three hands in the frescoes, which are usually attributed to Veronese alone. The lost decorative program is reconstructed by collating the original list of 108 fragments, drawn up in 1818, with lists of fragments shown in England in 1825 and 1827 and with the visual remains, using Ridolfi's passage to help place fragments in the four decorated rooms. Twelve drawings in Milan record extant and described elements of the decoration and also record the same three hands identified in the extant fragments. Sources for the cycle at "La Soranza" exist among earlier fresco cycles in Renaissance Verona, where antiquarian studies had fostered illusionistic decorations since 1500. /// In den Vite von Vasari werden neben Canneri auch Veronese und Zelotti als Freskenmaler in der später zerstörten Villa Soranza genannt. Der Vergleich von elf Freskofragmenten aus dem Jahre 1551 mit den Arbeiten dieser drei Künstler aus dem gleichen Zeitraum bestätigt, daß diese drei an den Fresken gearbeitet haben, und nicht nur, wie ursprünglich angenommen wurde, Veronese allein. Ridolfis Beschreibung, das Verzeichnis der in England 1825 und 1827 ausgestellten Fragmente und Überreste der Fresken ermöglichen eine Rekonstruktion des dekorativen Programmes der vier Säle in der Villa Soranza. Auch die zwölf Zeichnungen in Mailand beweisen die Mitwirkung dieser drei Künstler an den hier untersuchten Fresken. Als Quellen für den Zyklus in der Villa Soranza kann man die früheren Renaissance-Fresken in Verona um 1500 mit ihren illusionistischen Dekorationen nennen.
