Amalia Barone tombstone

AUTHOR: Vittorio Meneghello

The portrait of Amalia Barone was made by the sculptor Vittorio Meneghello, whose signature is legible on the bottom left.
The woman’s face is rendered in a realistic way: the signs of old age are very evident, the hairstyle with the hair gathered is typical of the fashion of the time and the earrings and the pin that holds the cloak in place are clearly visible. The frame from which the woman seems to look out is surrounded by two climbing rose plants, elements symbol of purity and eternity.
