Church of San Lorenzo

- January 2016


With the support of the non-profit Friends of Florence Foundation, Filippo Lippi’s panel of the Annunciation has recently been restored by Lucia Biondi and Roberto Buda and reinstalled in the church of San Lorenzo. A masterful example of Early Renaissance art, since the early 1440s the painting has hung on the back wall of the Martelli family chapel, located in the left transept of the church, near the entrance to the Old Sacristy. The two year project was supported with major gifts by Janet and Jim Dicke II, Anne and Rob Krebs, Nancy and Jeff Moreland, and The Jay Pritzker Foundation.

Magenta Florence published this wonderful article on the restoration.

With the Generous Support of:
