Portraits of female saints. Chapel of the Blessings
The first chapel to the right in the choir of the Basilica of Sant’Antonio, the Chapel of St. Catherine or of the Blessings, was originally a chapel owned by the Scrovegni family, the same who commissioned the cycle which is perhaps the most famous work of Giotto. Heavily repainted and tampered with, the Saint’s Chapel bears traces of a fourteenth-century fresco cycle which has been attributed to Giotto since 1968. The chapel was once completely decorated, but after the interventions carried out in 1727, only the busts of the Saints on the inside of the access arches remain.
