Il cenacolo di Santa Apollonia / The Cenacolo of Santa Apollonia
This is the first, exciting guide to the Cenacle of Santa Apollonia in Florence and the frescoes of Andrea del Castagno
This is the first, exciting guide to the Cenacle of Santa Apollonia in Florence and the frescoes of Andrea del Castagno. By admiring the Last Supper, readers will understand the meaning, for Florentines during the 15th century, of the spacious order of Filippo Brunelleschi, the ornate perspective of Alberti, the dream of the past that makes its comeback, the primacy of Man understood as the center of the universe created by God, as the measure of all things. The unity of light and space that is found in the Cenacle has allowed this work to be considered as the most stunning illusion of reality of the entire Renaissance. This book is by Rosanna Caterina Proto Pisani, an art historian who works for the Soprintendenza Speciale per il Polo Museale Fiorentino. Her background and studies have guided her interests in Renaissance art. She is also the author of various publications on this topic.
