    Description:

    The Pazzi Chapel was intended to emulate the Old Sacristy at S Lorenzo.

The design may date from 1423. Owing to the patron’s reluctance to make funds available, the Pazzi Chapel was not built until 1442-ca. 1465, after the death of Pazzi (who was buried in Santa Croce) and mostly after the death of Brunellesc…

    Description:

    The church of S. Luke was probably founded in the twelfth century with a simple façade, still visible, although enriched by an elegant portico in front of the entrance door, built in 1415.
