Lazzaro Morelli

Lazzaro Morelli

Lazzaro Morelli (30 October, 1608- 1690) was an Italian sculptor of the Baroque period. Born in Ascoli Piceno, the son of the Florentine sculptor Fulgenzio Morelli, who also trained Lazzaro's cousin, the artist Giuseppe Giosafatti. Lazzaro is best known for having worked in the studio of Gianlorenzo Bernini, and participating in the sculpting of one of the "angel with the whip" (scourge) of the Ponte Sant'Angelo in Rome. He also sculpted the statue of "Benignity", for the St. Peter's tomb monument for Clement X. The tomb was designed by Mattia de' Rossi (1684) and the other sculptors were Ercole Ferrata (pope) and Giuseppe Mazzuoli ("Clemency"). He also completed some of the saints in the roof-line of the external colonnades of St. Peter's Basilica. [ [| Statues of the Colonnade.] ] He also participated in the decoration of "San Pietro Martire" in Ascoli Piceno. Also of interest is the "aedicule" outside the church of San Francesco, used by the condemned led to execution. [ [| Italian wikipedia entry for the aedicule.] ]
