From Borgo S. Lorenzo, the itinerary moves towards Marradi where we can take in the breathtaking landscape of the quaint town of Crespino sul Lamone. In St. Maria Nascente Church, part of the historic Vallumbrosan Abbey, we find the tented wood panel portraying the "Madonna with child and the angels" attributed to Jacopo del Casentino, dated 1342.
From Mugello, we can continue our tour to Florence where the presence of Giotto is dated 1314 and onwards. In 1327, he became a member of the Arte dei medici e speziali, an association of artists, and was the director of a thriving workshop. In 1334, while Capomastro dell’Opera di Santa Maria del Fiore (master artist), he designed the famous Campanile (bell-tower), which bears his name. He died while travelling home from Milan in 1337 and was buried in Santa Reparata, in the crypt which lies under the Florentine Cathedral, Santa Maria del Fiore. He left behind numerous precious masterpieces in the most important churches and museums in the city: Santa Croce Church, Santa Maria Novella, the Horne Museum and the Uffizi Gallery.
