The arches of San Giacomo Maggiore: historical-artistic coordinates and protection
Keywords:Bologna, San Giacomo Maggiore’s church, 13th century, 14th century, Sepulchral arches, Detached frescos, Restoration, Valorisation, Protection
This research examines the arches erected between 1282 and 1290 on the left side of the church of San Giacomo Maggiore in Bologna. At first, workers linked to the Byzantine art of northern Italy were involved in the construction, but in the 14th century they were replaced by local artists. A renewed documentary investigation carried out in the archives of the Bologna Superintendency has uncovered some critical issues regarding protection.
