Decoration of the windows
In 1329 Robert of Anjou decided to entrust Giotto, the most famous painter of his time, who had already been called for Santa Chiara in Naples the year before, with the decoration of some rooms in Castel Nuovo, works which were carried out from 1329 to 1333. Only fragments of the frescoes in the Palatine Chapel are left today of the entire original cycle: the decorations of the side walls of the seven windows in which the plant motifs, fake marble and mosaic, alternate with tondos with coats of arms, among which the royal ones stand out, together with male heads, busts of saints, of monks and of women and children.
