My 3 day Italy trip - Firenze, Church of Santa Maria Novella (cont.) - The Green Cloister - The 19th of September 2015


We walked around the arcaded cloister whose fescoes were painted by the master Paolo Uccelo.  Known and referred to as Green cloister, its name derives from the  green tinge to Uccelo's  Noah and Flood  frescoes, which were unfortunately damaged by the  1966's floods.
I must confess we were impressed despite the state of some of those.
