Milan and San Giuliano Milanese

Itinerary

One of the most important turning points which led to the progressive change of expressive and technical patterns regarding local painting tradition during the fourteenth century certainly concerns Giotto’s presence and production, when he was called to Milan a few years before his death by the Lord of the City Azzone Visconti in order to work on the now-lost cycle of his own palace which was the “ancestor” of today's Palazzo Reale, now the result of various stages of renovations and reconstructions which finally culminated in the one by Giuseppe Piermarini. Giotto’s lesson upgrades and radically changes Lombard figurative culture which, during the fifteen years spanning from his arrival in Milan (about 1335-1336) to 1349, the date of the fresco of the last bay of the nave of the Viboldone abbey, reaches one of the highest points of the fourteenth century and of the whole of Italian painting for quality and intensity.
