Ilaria
del Carretto

Paolo Guinigi, Lord of Lucca, commissioned the funerary monument to commemorate his wife after her death in 1405. This 15th century sculptural masterpiece was realized by Jacopo della Quercia, an innovative artist from Siena capable of fusing late gothic elegance with emerging humanism.

Created by the goldsmith Ambrogio Giannoni of Massa, the crown was placed on the Volto Santo’s head in 1655 during a lavish ceremony which lasted three days. It continues to be used to dress the relic on the feast day of Santa Croce.
