Antonella Gioli, Anna Salvadorini

 

ABSTRACT

The Charterhouse of Calci near Pisa during the eighteenth century is involved in a deep architectural and decorative renewal. The paper investigates the wall paintings commissioned by prior Alfonso Giuseppe Maggi to Pietro Giarrè (1770-1781) analyzing deals (conditions, payments, times and outlays), purchase of materials (paints and brushes, providers and prices), typologies of pigments used (historical sources and diagnostic investigations).
