Assisi and Perugia

Itinerary

Giotto made his debut in the Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi at a very young age, working on panels with stories from the Old and New Testament (Stories of Isaac, Lamentation over the Dead Christ) and then the twenty-eight stories of St. Francis in the Upper Church. Later, he leads the works of decorating the chapels of St. Nicholas (1300 approx.) and Maddalena (about 1309) in the lower church and finally he intervenes in the transept of the Lower Basilica. He worked by coordinating a team, using his brush only for the most iconographic and political scenes.
The innovative capacity of the site from Assisi is evidenced by the incredible amount of models that artists from all over Italy infer from here. The birth and development of art in Umbria is documented in the Galleria Nazionale of Umbria, which preserves important works from the territory.
