Giacobbe Giusti, Giotto from Assisi to Milan (Palazzo Reale)
Giotto, l’Italia. Da Assisi a Milano
The exhibition Giotto, l’Italia. Da Assisi a Milano (from Assisi to Milan) at the Palazzo Reale in Milan follows the footsteps of Giotto through the early decades of the 14th century.
Giotto di Bondone (1266-1337) was an Italian painter and architect, born in Florence. He is considered to be the first of many great artists who contributed to the Italian Renaissance.
His works can be found all over Italy, from frescoes in Franciscan churches at Assisi, Rimini and Padua to altarpieces for the St. Peter’s in Rome and the Baroncelli Chapel in Santa Croce, Florence. Towards the end of his life, Giotto also spent time in Milan. This is where he created his last work called Gloria del Mondo, a work that unfortunately has been lost.
