The Lamentation over the Dead Christ or Compianto sul Cristo Morto are a set of terracotta sculptures housed in the church of Santa Maria Della Vita.
The work shows seven life size figures, with dead Christ at the centre with his head resting on the pillow. Around him we have two Marys filled with pain of her loss and the distress displayed through her torn clothes. After which we have the Madonna, with clasped hands and a woman besides her regretting the death of Christ. Sait John is represented with his palm on his chin, detached from other figures on the left.
The intensity of these sculptures is incomparable with any work of art at the time. The work had an impact of Emilian school; however his force was dampened by Guido Mazzoni. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Bologna itinerary 3 days.
