The above is a quotation of Giorgio Vasari (1511-1574) whose judgement is reckoned to be pretty sound on these matters. I am not quite sure how Fra Giovanni da Verona (1457-1525) managed to accomplish such a wealth of such beauty but apparently he not only carried out the marquetry behind the altar and in the sagrestia but he also painted frescoes and was the architect for the campanile. Apparently his artistic talents were so great and well appreciated that he knew most of the leading artists of the day, Michelangelo and Pinturicchio among others, and he was able to persuade Mantegna to paint an altarpiece- since sold and resident in Milano, much to the disgust of the sacristan who referred to it as "Our Altarpiece"- and to draw the designs for the five central marquetry pieces behind the altar.Fra Giovanni was the achitect of the sagrestia and the creator of the inlays of the wardrobes but his masterpiece is probably the complex of 41 stalls and a lectern some of which are the finest examples of perspective of the time.
If this does not whet your appetite, I could mention some frescoes by Domenico Morone and his son, and other artists including the Brusasorci but do not waste time reading my review; go and see one of the oldest and most attractive churches in Verona for yourself and feast your eyes on this little jewel.
