Il Gotico / Tirolo

Un profondo legame unisce il Tirolo allo stile gotico: il singolare corrispondere della nascita di questa regione come entità politica nel corso del XIII secolo con l'affermarsi in campo artistico delle nuove forme slanciate che suggeriscono il movimento, introdotte dal gotico. Il nuovo stile si radica con realizzazioni artistiche che non mancano di caratterizzazioni locali rispetto al  ...
