Gentile da Fabriano at the Palazzo del Broletto

Discover the hidden fresco of the great master of international Gothic

Follow the traces of Gentile da Fabriano’s presence in Brescia: retrace the architectural events of the Palazzo del Broletto and pass through rooms that have never been open to the public until you reach the precious fresco fragments.

Between 1414 and 1419 Gentile da Fabriano, one of the greatest exponents of international Gothic, produced an extraordinary work in Brescia, commissioned by Pandolfo III Malatesta lord of the city. Significant sums were spent on the execution of this masterpiece, a fresco embellished with large amounts of gold, lapis lazuli and silver, chosen and purchased directly by the artist. The painting, executed at the 15th-century Chapel of St. George or Palatine Chapel of the Broletto, was lost in the course of the palace’s architectural remodeling, fueling fantasies and legends over the centuries. In 1985, during a restoration site, fragments of the sky, views of cities with Gothic towers, fortified villages, and green hills resurfaced as evidence of the work done in Brescia by Gentile da Fabriano.
