San Giovanni Evangelista: 14th-Century Vault Fresco

14th-Century Vault Fresco

Vault of a chapel in the left aisle, with fragments of beautiful 14th-century frescoe depicting the Four Evangelists with their symbols and four Doctors of the Church (Jerome, Ambrose, Augustine and Gregory). Some scholars have attributed the frescoes to Giotto, whose style they certainly reflect, but they were more likely painted by Giovanni Baronzio da Rimini.
