Abstract :
This article deals with the Roman re-used columns of the church of S. Pietro in Alba Fucens. The Corinthian capitals and the shafts of the naves are of Lunense marble, those on the sides of the apses are of local stone. We focus on the normalization of the Corinthian capital in the Augustan age through an analytical study. That is the consequence of styles popularized by Rome and Campania. They spread widely in Italy and in the Western provinces. We have also carried out the study of the normalization of the medieval Corinthian capitals in Abruzzo that the capitals of the iconostasis testify. The style of the second triumvirate is widely taken up in capitals and other decorations of the churches of the 12th and 13th centuries.
