Description

The corselet is the set of plates that protect the warrior from head to hips. This, not complete, is the work of the famous Milanese armoraro Pompeo della Cesa, who engraved his signature in a scroll on the upper part of the chest. The etching engraved decoration covers the entire surface, according to a "fabric" style that particularly recalls velvets and is typical of the advanced stage of the master's production. Floral motifs, some stylized others with a more free course, welcome folders with figurines of warriors and grotesques. The armor must have been gilded, as mentioned in the first catalog of the museum of 1840. On the right side of the chest is visible a bullet hole from a light firearm.
