Overview
More
The church of Monteoliveto, or Sant'Anna dei Lombardi, is known for its quantity and quality of Renaissance artworks, such as those by tuscans Benedetto da Maiano and Antonio Rossellino, together with famed frescos by Giorgio Vasari within the Sagrestia Vecchia that make the Church one of the most relevant examples of Tuscan Renaissance in Naples. It’s also important to mention the Compianto sul Cristo Morto, a statuesque group by Guido Mazzoni from Modena. Guided Tours of the Museum are organized by the Social Cooperative ParteNeapolis.

The wonders in this church came as a complete surprise. The Aula Vasari is absolutely beautiful, with features unlike any we've seen elsewhere; I won't even try to describe them. Also astounding is a life-size lamentation of Christ in clay that my wife (who is...More
