notes

The typology of the work, memorial stone surmounted by a cross, with commemorative tombstone on the front of the monument, has many analogies with the memorial stone of San Donnino. We can say that the author, or the company which has made the two stones, could be the same, or we can suppose that the memorial stone of San Donnino, previously made, has been used as model for the monument of Cogna.
