(d. 1409, active in Emilia)

Tomb of Giovanni da Legnano (fragment)

1383-86
Marble, 63 x 77 cm
Museo Civico Medievale, Bologna

The Dalle Masegne brothers Jacobello and Pierpaolo were active at the end of the 14th century in Emilia and Venice. One of their finest work is a relief from the tomb of Giovanni da Legnano (d. 1383), a professor at the famed University. The relief shows a class of students with great naturalism and animation.
