Setting fonts for Xterm from Xresources

I'm running Fedota 17 x86_64.

I have problems to set the font type to be used in XTerm from Xresources:
I edited my ~/.Xresources in order to set the font face (resource
"faceName") and size (resource "faceSize").
Here below is the output of "xrdb -query -all":
--- [out] ---
XTerm*background: #ffffff
XTerm*color0: #000000
XTerm*color1: #a31515
XTerm*color10: #fd9b43
XTerm*color11: #00af00
XTerm*color12: #335d85
XTerm*color14: #389fa0

XTerm*faceName: "Inconsolata"
XTerm*faceSize: 12

Xft.antialias: 1
Xft.dpi: 96
Xft.hinting: 1
Xft.hintstyle: hintmedium
Xft.rgba: none
--- [/out] ---

As you can see, I specified the "Inconsolata" font for the resource
"faceName". However, XTerm seems to ignore it (yes, the font has been
installed from Fedora repo). I have also tried with other fonts, but I
obtain the same result.

If instead I specify the font from the command line (option "-fa"), it works.

Where am I wrong?

Thank you so much for your help.
