Abstract

In a 14th-century Ligurian diptych, now in the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, the Coronation of the Provençal blessed Delphine and Elzéar di Sabran is overshadowed: the scene is enclosed in a representation that alludes to the amorous meeting of the Roman martyrs Cecilia and Valerian. The stories of the two couples are intertwined in the common love story, but mainly in the choice of chastity. In this paper are proposed some works of art of the ‘Trecento’ that may refer to the double iconography: paintings of the contexts along the Mediterranean sea, between Barcelona, Avignon, Pisa and Naples.
