Brancaccio Chapel
The frescoes have been attributed by some critics to Pietro Cavallini, a Roman painter called to Naples to the court of Charles II of Anjou in 1308. The recent restoration, completed in 2013, has provided evidence to support the role of the maestro in leading the site works. Where the hypothesis of the patronage of Cardinal Landolfo Brancaccio and a dating prior to 1312 have yet to be confirmed, it is clear that, twenty years before Giotto arrived, through this cycle and with the others carried out in Naples, Cavallini had begun opening up towards the new art from central Italy which would characterise the choices of the Angevin court.
