Inauguration of the Cloister of the Vows - Friends of Florence

  • Santissima Annunziata (map)

The Cloister is the entrance atrium to Santissima Annunziata, one of the most important churches in Florence. Michelozzo di Bartolomeo designed the four-sided portico.  The atrium is decorated with marble reliefs and twelve wall paintings by major Florentine artists, including Andrea del Sarto, Pontormo and Rosso Fiorentino.  Friends of Florence paid for the restoration of the twelve lunette masterpiece frescos, architectural elements and the marble statues in the atrium.  The presentation will be primarily in Italian with some English.  This event is free.
