Abstract: The Colomba family of Arogno comprised. five artisti dei laghi ('artists of the lakes'), so called because their place of origin lay in the region of the Pre-Alpine Lakes. These were Andrea, stuccateur (1567-1627); Giovanni Antonio, stuccateur (1585- 1650); Giovanni Battista, stuccateur, painter, architect, and entrepreneur (1638 [?]-1693); Luca Antonio. painter (1674-1737); and Giovanni Battista Innocenzo, painter and scenographer (1717-1801). In a pleasant and very readable guide book, Lucia Pedrini Stanga has succeeded in reconstructing in fascinating detail an admirable biography of these little-known Baroque artists, one that appeals both to the general reader and to the student of art and historian.
