Fresco cycle of the Nuns' Choir

Unknown painters influenced by Cavallini

Fresco - 1317-1330 ca.

Listen to the audioguide

The Nuns' Choir, Donnaregina Vecchia
The paintings, the older parts dating back to shortly before 1320, have been attributed by many critics to the Roman painter Pietro Cavallini. Actually, it seems more convincing to assign the cycle to a group of artists who trained in Rome, in Santa Cecilia in Trastevere, by the side of the famous maestro. Because of the heat caused by a fire in the church at the end of the fourteenth century, the frescoes have taken on a widespread terracotta reddish colour.
