The itinerary takes you inside the Museo della Basilica di Santa Maria delle Grazie, which is home to works by artists including Lo Scheggia, Mariotto di Cristofano, Giovanni da Piamonte, Domenico di Michelino, Jacopo del Sellaio, Beato Angelico and Giovanni Mannozzi, also known as Giovanni da San Giovanni.
Two panels painted by Lo Scheggia (real name Giovanni di Ser Giovanni) are also to be admired: a Madonna and Child (1440-1450), which originally lived in the church of San Lorenzo, also in San Giovanni Valdarno; and a panel done in tempera which depicts a choir of musician angels and forms part of an organ case, from the sacristy of the San Lorenzo Oratory (1440-1450).
In the same museum you will see two works by the Valdarno painter Mariotto di Cristofano, one of which is a Christ on the Cross between the Virgin Mary and Saint Lucy (1420-1425). This work originated in the church of Santa Lucia in the same town. The second is a Madonna and Child with saints (1453), from the church of San Lorenzo.
After visiting the museum, cross Piazza Masaccio to reach Piazza Cavour. Opposite the entrance of Palazzo d'Arnolfo is the parish church of San Giovanni Battista, which was built in the first half of the fourteenth century. The façade is girded by a colonnade, which was built later and is adorned with tondi from the della Robbia school.
If you still have a few minutes left to savor the city, we recommend a visit to the chapel of the Augustian monastery to admire one of the most beautiful panels by the Master of the Nativity of Castello, a fifteenth-century Madonna and Child.
