The mural paintings of the church of Sant’Agostino della Cella in Sampierdarena are one of the most discussed but less known fresco cycles of the Genoese Middle Ages, dated in a very wide span of time, between the beginning of XIIth and the end of the XIIIth century. This paper reconsiders them from the archaeological, iconographic and stylistic point of view: combining the data of current scientific investigations along with those supplied by some nineteenth-century documents (a report edited in 1882 and some drawings by Alfredo d'Andrade) they can be dated around 1280 and read in a new perspective.

Abstract

The mural paintings of the church of Sant’Agostino della Cella in Sampierdarena are one of the most discussed but less known fresco cycles of the Genoese Middle Ages, dated in a very wide span of time, between the beginning of XIIth and the end of the XIIIth century. This paper reconsiders them from the archaeological, iconographic and stylistic point of view: combining the data of current scientific investigations along with those supplied by some nineteenth-century documents (a report edited in 1882 and some drawings by Alfredo d'Andrade) they can be dated around 1280 and read in a new perspective.
