The cult expressed for Saint Anthony of Padua has its origins in life itself. After his canonization, devotion became widespread in the 15th century, especially due to the Counter-Reformation movement initiated by the Church, which sought through arts to disseminate the theological and spiritual contents of its doctrine.

Some painters and sculptors dedicated part of their work in shaping the holy preacher wanting to portray through spiritual eyes the valuation of the values ​​exalted by the saint, who despite the times remains one of the most remembered of the Roman bok of saints.
