Fresco cycle in the Baptistery of the Cathedral

Giusto de' Menabuoi

Fresco - 1375-1378

Listen to the audioguide

Fresco cycle in the Baptistery of the Cathedral
Inside, the Baptistery appears to be completely painted by a decorative cycle of high doctrinal and aesthetic value, painted by Giusto de' Menabuoi between 1375 and 1378, which has an extraordinary emotional impact on visitors. It was commissioned by Fina Buzzacarini, the wife of Francesco da Carrara, lord of the city. The general theme is the high theological concept of "Salvation", through which the entire work must be read both in an iconographic and iconological manner.
