Episode 54: Florence: Santa Maria Novella – Strozzi Chapel
February 6, 2024

Episode Info:
This episode examines the beautiful pictorial decorations in the 14th-century Strozzi Chapel in Santa Maria Novella in Florence, Italy by the brothers Andrea (better known as “Orcagna”) and Nardo di Cione. Almost perfectly preserved after eight centuries, the chapel also offers the extraordinary opportunity to see just exactly how these ecclesiastical spaces were used in their own day.
