Scrovegni Chapel: frescoes by Giotto

Highly recommended
Around 1310 Giotto decorated the walls of this chapel with 39 frescoes depicting the lives of Joachim and Anne, the Virgin and Christ: the Flight from Egypt, the Judas' Kiss, the Laying in the Tomb are the most famous scenes in this collection of exceptional unity of execution, dramatic power and harmony which make it the apogee of the artist's work.
