abstract

The following study is based on the observation of a scagliola frontal from the second half of the 17th century in the chapel of the Blessed Sacrament in the church of Santa Maria in Aracoeli in Rome. The decoration, representing saint Francis Solanus playing the violin to the birds as its subject, becomes the occasion for an iconographic and iconological study that investigates the figure of the Franciscan missionary saint and, going backwards, that of saint Francis of Assisi, comparing them with those of Adam and Orpheus.
