Giovanni Battista Marino

The Palermo-born sculptor worked during the second half of the 18th century in some Sicilian cities and on the largest buildings in Catania.
In particular, he was part of the group of sculptors who worked on the Benedictine Monastery.
In 1767 he made the models of the statues for the façade of the Badia di Sant’Agata and in 1782, in collaboration with Mario Biundo and Giovanni Battista Amato, he created the statues and altars still present in the church today.
