English This paper focuses on the ways in which the most important cult-image in Medieval Lucca, the so-called "Volto Santo" (holy face) came to be regarded by contemporary viewers as a true-to-life image of Christ, sculpted by the Pharisee Nicodemus. The paper emphasizes also the connection with the liturgical tradition of the Passio ymaginis feast on November 9 and its literary and ritual framework.
