Gaggini family (Italian family of sculptors, masons, and architects, active 15th-19th centuries)

Note: One branch of the family, which came from Bissone, Ticino, was active in Genoa from the 15th century. Members of this branch include Domenico, Elia, Giovanni, and Pace. The Gaginis worked collaboratively, combining the skills of mason and sculptor. Their work was mainly decorative and ornamental, figurative sculpture being of secondary importance. They remained active in Genoa until the 19th century. Domenico, one of the most innovative members of the family, settled in Sicily between 1458 and 1463 and founded a separate branch that remained active until the 17th century. So far, only the genealogy of the Sicilian branch of the family has been reconstructed.
