Stained glass windows at the Sanctuary of Loreto, Piazza Della Madonna 1, 60025 Loreto, AN, Italy. In Italy, the use of decorating church windows with figurative windows is an imported phenomenon, which came through the emergence of the Gothic style. For the realization of the windows of the Duomo of Milan, one of the largest existing cycles in Italy, many master glassmakers were brought from Germany and the Flemish countries. An autochthonous window is the Venetian one with rollers (disks). With the prevalence of the Renaissance style, more sensitive to perspective renditions and volumes, the stained-glass window adapted making more and more use of painting. One of the techniques that began to take hold in this period is the grisaglia, used since the fifteenth century. It is an enamel composed of copper oxide and a fondant used to create nuances and give body to figures and decorations.
