The dome painting by Giuseppe Cali in the chapel of the Crucifix in the Cospicua Collegiate Parish Church:  History and Conservation Challenges

By:  Ms Roberta De Angelis      Date:  24 May 2013

 

Description: The talk focused on the wall painting that Giuseppe Calì (1846-1930) painted in 1903 on the dome of the chapel of the Crucifix in the Cospicua Collegiate Parish Church. The painting is in a very precarious state of conservation. The talk will be an occasion to share interesting details related to the painting, ranging from its history and painting technique to the conservation problems, revealed through a multidisciplinary study carried out for the conservation of the painting.

Marquis N. De Piro, a family relative of Giuseppe Cali introduced the speech with family anecdotes.
