A masterpiece for Santa Maria della Stella

The precious Nativity from the church of Santa Maria della Stella la Vetere (St. Mary of the Star), on the outskirts of the town of Militello, remained intact after the great earthquake.
Commissioned in 1487 by the Lord of Militello Antonio Pietro Barresi, created by the Florentine workshop of Andrea della Robbia, the Nativity is an artistic product of exceptional workmanship, used by local potters as a reference.
In a recent restoration, an attempt was made to restore this work to its former brilliance, to bring out its splendid blue and yellow colours and restore lustre to the white.La Nativita'
