The painter Stefano da Pandino, lived and worked in Milan throughout the first half of the fifteenth century, in the late Gothic context at Visconti court. The present research focus on documents analysis and the systematic order of the historical, critical and literary sources about Stefano da Pandino in order to rebuilt his biographical profile and to study deeply his artistic career. Analyzed documents are kept in Milan State Archive and Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo Archive. Stefano da Pandino, whose name has always been linked by historicals to the first fifteenth century built phase of Milan Cathedral glass windows, was a member of the School of milanese painters of San Luca and he was probably head of an important medieval workshop, in contact with the most famous painters at that time as Michelino da Besozzo and Franceschino Zavattari. In fact, Stefano da Pandino’s first wife was Maddalena Zavattari, Cristoforo’s daughter and Franceschino’s sister. Thanks to documents and historical sources we have a lot of news on the glass windows of Milan Cathedral and other artworks by Stefano da Pandino. Nevertheless, it is not yet possible to define a corpus of artworks certainly refer to the painter; because they have not been preserved. Stefano da Pandino was probably born between 1385 and 1395 and died in Milan between 1458 and 1460. He had at least four male children, two of which are documented as painters: Cristoforo and Antonio.
