  • Title: Orazione e pittura tra "propaganda" e devozione al tempo di Sisto IV: il caso della Madonna della Misericordia di Ganna [once Sixtus IV issued a decree favoring the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception, texts and images favoring that doctrine proliferated; some texts, genuine or spurious, promised indulgences to the devout; and they featured excerpts from Leonardo Nogarolo's office for the feast of Mary Immaculate; the image of the Madonna della Misericordia at Varese is such an image; the church also features the monogram of the Name of Jesus popularized by the Franciscan Observants; the entire complex benefited from patronage by the Sforza family].
