Restoration of Mino da Fiesole’s Funerary Monument to Ugo of Toscana – Badia Fiorentina Church

Badia Fiorentina Church

In 1481, Mino da Fiesole completed this tomb for the oldest monastic foundation in Florence, the Benedictine Abbey known as the Badia.  This monumental marble wall tomb is one of Mino’s most famous works, revealing his skill as a sculptor of portraits, reliefs, and elaborate decorative moldings, and his gift as a designer of complex architectural structures.
