Stories of the Virgin and of Mary Magdalene
The church was originally richly decorated. Three important examples of the spread of Giotto’s style remain today. The first, in chronological order, is the one painted towards 1295-1300, by the so-called "Maestro of the Stories of Magdalene" in the first chapel of the ambulatory. The second dates to around 1300 and its author was Montano d'Arezzo, whose "Nativity" and the "Death of the Virgin" still remain. The last is attributed to the so-called "Maestro of Giovanni of Anjou" who has left us one of the most important examples of the spread of Giotto’s style in the South of Italy through his cycle regarding the “Life of the Virgin” (1333-34).
