Description

The Basilica of San Marco in Florence is a church with many frescoes in the historic center of Florence. Comissioned by Cosimo il Vecchio De Medici for the architect Michelozzo, it is a reference point for the surrounding urban area. You will see 5 areas in this highly important structure: the church, the facade, the convent, the first, and the second cloister. The church was originally part of the large complex of the San Marco monastery, where many of the most important representatives of spirituality and fifteenth-century culture lived and worked: Cosimo il Vecchio De Medici, St. Antonino, Fra Angelico, Fra Bartolomeo and, above all, Fra Girolamo Savonarola.  The death of Savonarola was announced with the help of the famous bell La Piagnona (the crying one) named after the followers of Savonarola, who were constantly complaining about the Florentines.
