Ercole Ferrata, Italian sculptor, was born in Pellio Inferiore, Como in 1610 and died in Rome in 1686. Being very active in Rome, he was in contact with Algardi and Bernini, and with the latter collaborated a lot. His technical abilities in treatment of material (Sant'Agnese in the church of Sant'Agnese in Rome), and pliability in connecting exuberance of Bernini and classicism of Algardi, brought him a great number of orders to work and later - numerous students.
