Basilica di San Francesco: Frescoes on Vault of North Transept in Lower Church

Frescoes on Vault of North Transept in Lower Church

Frescoes on the vault of the north transept in the Lower Church, depicting scenes from the life of Christ as well as various miracles by St Francis. The authorship of Giotto is debated; these scenes were probably executed by Giotto's workshop under the direction of the master. A masterpiece by Cimabue, the Madonna Enthroned with the Child (Maesta) is also among the decoration.
