[3]Many materials

Wood, white marble, colourful marble, canvas and gold are some of the materials used to compose the church’s works, each with different characteristics.
The smooth marble of the main altar contrasts with the irregular surface of the Solomonic columns of the rough and porous façade.
The hardness of the panel is completely different to the softness of the Tanasi’s Annunciation painting-artists must always take into account the type of material they are going to paint on or sculpt.
