Santa Croce

By Nick Weed & Andrew Nip

The Santa Croce basilica houses a number of art and architecture pieces that illustrate the shift of Byzantine style into the Early Renaissance art and architecture. Late Byzantine art artifacts such as Cimabue’s Crucifix – which was damaged extensively in the Florence flood of 1966 – can be found in the basilica’s refectory and museum. Early Renaissance art include Giotto’s Bardi and Peruzzi chapel frescoes while Early Renaissance architecture within the basilica include Brunelleschi’s Pazzi chapel and cloister. In addition, many famous Florentines can be found buried in the nave of basilica, including Michelangelo, Machiavelli, Dante and Galileo.
