The thesis focuses on the da Corbetta’s workshop. The members of this family of wooden sculptors, active from the end of fifteenth century untill the end of the sixteenth century, fit into the tradition of classical Lombard woodensculpture of the Renaissance. The most investigated figure is Andrea da Corbetta’s one. He is the author of the statues in the Santuario della Beata Vergine dei Miracolo in Saronno. The study’s purpose is to rediscover the other personalities who worked in the da Corbetta’s workshop, such as Andrea’s father Giovanni Pietro, his uncle Santino, or his cousin Giovanni Battista. From the discoveries made by Vittorio Pini, Elisabetta Bianchi and Rossana Sacchi, a new research was started mostly on the Fondo Notarile of Archivio di Stato di Milano. It was found two hundred and twelve documents, that are transcribed in the second part of the thesis. The new informations allow to draw an accurate family tree of these engravers, and also to delinate precise profiles of each member. At the same time it is possible to understand where the da Corbetta’s workshop was located in the city of Milan and investigate how, in the urban context, they becomed related with others engravers or painters, such as the court-artist Giovanni Angelo Mirofoli da Seregno. At these two points is dedicated the treatment in the thesis, because in litterature there is a a little bit gap about this subject for Milan. In the context that the documents allow to create, the da Corbetta’s workshop emerges as a protagonist: it is confirmed the praise that Paolo Morigia in the Nobiltà di Milano (edited in 1595) tributes to these sculptors.
