It is the best and most popular masterpiece Rizzoli created at the Certosa, the first and finest example of adhesion to the refined style of Art Nouveau.
The group of sculptures stands out against the concave light-blue mosaic background. The Angel leads the Soul of the deceased skywards while slumped in his arms. The two figures seem to detach themselves from the earthly world as they soar.
Pasquale Rizzoli (1871-1953)
