Maiolica a Venezia: Un pavimento rinascimentale nella chiesa di San Sebastiano

2002 Ministero per i Beni e le Attività Culturali

Marsilio Editori

The tile floor in the Lando Chapel in the Venetian church of San Sebastiano is a masterpiece of Italian Renaisance majolica. After a long and complex restoration nearly on hundred of the tiles were displayed at the G. Franchetti Gallery at Ca’ d’Oro, exemplifying the rich variety of iconographic themes that decorated the chapel like a precious carpet. This volume offers a critical analysis of the restoration problems and attribution proposals after more than a century of study.
