My 3 day Italy trip - Firenze, St. Trinità church - The 20th of September 2015


I didn't have the time I would have liked to have had to explore the church of Santa Trinità, which I was impressed by, once more because of the frescoes, namely Girlandaio's.
Said to have been built in the second half of the 11th century by the Vallombrosan order, it was very plain so as to reflect the austerity and simplicity of the order. It would later become gradually more ornate, with a Barroque façade added in 1593.

Bas-relief over the central door sculpted by Pietro Bernini and Giovanni Caccini.

The Adoration of the shepperds (1485) by Domenico Ghirlandaio. Frescoes by Ghirlandaio  (1433).

Altar piece by Marioflodi Nardo - 1416.

Wooden statue of Mary Magdalene by Desiderio da Settignamo -1450 (left).
