Columbarium Pietro Sgulmero

AUTHOR: Ugo Zannoni

Pietro Sgulmero was director of the Civic Museum of Verona in the early twentieth century and throughout his life he devoted himself to literary studies, history, archeology, epigraphy, bibliography and numismatics. In the medallion at the center of the columbarium the deceased is portrayed in profile, instead of three-quarters or frontally as per tradition: the pose is a tribute to the Roman coins of the imperial age where the emperors were represented in profile.
