Fellowship Work Summary, 1992–93

Lucio Riccetti wrote the bibliographic essay for and completed his book on the Orvieto cathedral. He planned and began a new book, The Reliefs on the Facade of Orvieto Cathedral: The Workshop in the Period of Lorenzo Maitani (1310-30), with photographs by David Finn, which will be published in the United States by Mayer & Britt and in Italy by Leonardo Arte. He provided five entries on the Filippeschi family for the Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani and worked on two essays: "11 costo dell'acqua (Orvieto: citta e cantiere del Duomo, secoli XIV-XV)," to be published by Ecole Franqaise de Rome, and "Opere cittadine e propaganda politica nelle citta italiane medievali," which he presented at an international conference.
