ENGLISH: In the course of research on Early Medieval sculpture in Sorrento, five inedited liturgical pieces (four pillarets and a pluteus) have been located, presently held in the archiepiscopal palace, the cathedral, and a private home. Analysis of this material has made it possible to advance some considerations on the function of the items, how they were crafted, their ornamentation, and their stylistic features, while at the same time giving support to the hypothesis that a number of church furnishings that are now scattered in various places in the city and in sundry museum collections in Italy and abroad are all from the Cathedral of Sts. Filippo and Giacomo. The pillarets in the bishop’s palace offer new details useful to reconstruct the history of the dispersal of items of early medieval sculpture, and particularly of the role played by Bishop Giulio Pavesi (1558-1571) in the dismemberment of the liturgical furnishings.
