In the church of Santa Cristina in Borgomanero is placed a dead Christ in wood from the sixties of the 15th century; the sculpture is probably a work of a carver from Novara who  works in that transition phase between the last Gothic and the dawn of the Renaissance. All this also leads to a reconsideration of wooden sculpture in the diocese of Novara, which involves De Donati workshop, which is present in Pieve Vergonte and Vogogna in Val d’Ossola, where an altarpiece was commissioned for the church of Santa Maria dei Servi in 1514. Finally, the author examines the diffusion in the territory of a type of Crucifixes datable between the end of the 15th century and the middle of the following century, of which two different variations are preserved: the first with carved beard and hair, while the second with real hair.
