In addition to the majestic and ancient cross of the church of San Francesco in Mercatello - the only work dated and signed by the forefather of the fourteenth-century Rimini School, fresh from the restoration done in recent months and which will be back in Rimini after 86 years - five other works complete this exhibition.
The exhibition compares the crosses by Giovanni present in Italy. Along with the Mercatello piece, there will be the important painted cross of the church of San Lorenzo in Talamello and the smaller "Diotallevi" crucifix of the Municipal Museums of Rimini, perhaps coming from Sant'Agostino.
Other comparisons can be made with the shaped cross of Antiquario Moretti of Florence, the Spina crucifix by the master of Montefiore and the head of Giuliano da Rimini.
The exhibition is curated by professors Daniele Benati and Alessandro Giovanardi.
