Giacomo Gagini

Giacomo Gaggini (also Gagini) (15 December 1517 – 25 June 1598) was an Italian sculptor.

Born in Palermo, he was the son of the sculptor Antonello Gagini, and the brother of Fazio and Vincenzo, and half-brother of Giovanni Domenico and Antonino Gaggini, all sculptors.

He started to collaborate with his father at an early age, including the work at the Palermo Cathedral. In 1536 he sculpted two statues for the church of San Francesco di Paola and, in 1537, the Omodei tomb in the church of San Francesco d'Assisi. In 1544, also in the Palermo Cathedral, he sculpted the archbishop's throne, together with his brother Fazio and others. He also produced numerous works in the province of Palermo (Trapani, Alcamo, Sinagra, Naro, Pettineo).

He died at Palermo in 1598.
