The sculptor of the wooden statue is Luigi Fasce, born in Ovada - near Alessandria - but grew up artistically with the important examples given by Anton Maria Maragliano and Francesco Biggi, artists ver y active in the Genoa’s area and even in the Oltregiogo, the land between Liguria, Piedmont and Lombardy. This study gives stylistic, iconographic and technical points of view to recognize Fasce’s apprenticeship and is based even on the data taken from the recent restoration of this work of art.
