RTS2425 Pellegrinaggio in Italia

Background Information

The frescoes by Benozzo Gozzoli (1421-1497) in the sanctuary and choir of the church of Sant’ Agostino in San Gimignano are treasures of the early Italian Renaissance. Also, recent cleaning of parts of the side and back walls of the church reveal snatches of 13 th century medieval frescoes of the Nativity of Jesus and the birth of the Virgin Mary as well.
