Sagrestia Vecchia

San Lorenzo

Piazza San Lorenzo, Florence, Italy

The facade of this church was never finished, but the Brunelleschi interior is elegantly austere. Stand in the middle of the nave at the entrance, on the line that stretches to the high altar, and you ‘ll see what Brunelleschi achieved with the grid of inlaid marble in the pavement. Every architectural element in the church is placed to create a dramatic effect of single – point perspective. The Sagrestia Vecchia (Old Sacristy), decorated with stuccoes by Donatello, is attributed to Brunelleschi.
