Naples and Teano

Itinerary

This itinerary presents the work of Giotto in the Campania region and his influence on local artists, which was already visible even before the painter arrived in Naples. The early evidence of the first phase of Giotto’s work is presented around 1300 by the Maestro of the Stories of Mary Magdalene and of Montano d'Arezzo in San Lorenzo Maggiore. Then, the further stylistic upgrade occurring in 1308 in the frescoes in San Domenico Maggiore and in Donnaregina Vecchia with the arrival in town of the Roman painter Pietro Cavallini and his collaborators. Finally, the presence of Giotto in person in Naples, between 1328 and 1332 at least, as is evidenced by fragments of the frescoes in the Palatine Chapel in Castel Nuovo, and in the Nuns’ Choir in Santa Chiara. Giotto’s influence deeply marks a generation of southern artists: besides Robert of Oderisio in Stories dell' Incoronata, there is also the Maestro of Giovanni Barrile, still in San Lorenzo Maggiore, to whom a visit in the hinterland of Caserta with the Crucifix of the Cathedral of Teano is dedicated.
