Museum of San Marco
Buildings are always being restored
Many of the freschi we see have been removed from their original location and placed in museums elsewhere and are often severely damaged from the elements and time. Most freschi at San Marco are still on the wall and in near-pristine condition.

Various rescued freschi
Looks almost Salvador Dali-ish to me
Juxtaposed? Blindfolded? Crystal ball? Free-floating hands?
Fra Angelico's "Annunziata"
Girolamo Savonarola also had a cell at San Marco. He gave many of his speeches during his brief reign of power from the pulpit of San Marco. He was first hanged and then burned at the stake in Piazza della Signoria in 1498 not long after Savonarola ordered the second Bonfire of the Vanities.

Just what is this bimbo reaching for?
