Abstract

In the field of stucco decoration, the Ticinese and Como area workers predominated, and were responsible for several decorative complexes of remarkable quality. These are here appropriately illustrated for the first time in unpublished photographs. Pompeo and Giuseppe Bianchi from Moltrasio and Domenico Fontana from Muggio wereactive between 1580 and 1608 in the sanctuary of Tirano, where they executed the stucco decoration of the lantern and main chapel. On the qualitative and quantitative level, the work of the Ticinese artist Alessandro Casella in the area is very important (Albosaggia, Castione Andevenno, Caiolo, Chiuro, Fusine, Grosio, Sacco di Cosio). He was far more well-known for his activity in the Piedmont in the castle of Valentino and in the Canton Ticino in the sanctuary of the Madonna dell'Ongero in Carona. Galeazzo Riva from Lugano is present with documented works in Albosaggia and in the sanctuary of Sazzo. The important stucco decoration in the presbytery in the church of S. Giorgio in Montagna (ca. 1629) in Francesco Silva's, while his son Agostino is more widely represented at the end of the seventeenth and the beginning of the eighteenth century in Chiuro (SS. Giacomo and Andrea), Roncaglia di Civo (S. Giacomo), Civo (S. Andrea) and Chiavenna (S. Maria).
