The History









Ciborium (wall tabernacle).
Carrara marble. Work by Mino da Fiesole or Donatello. 1432.

By referring to ancient Greco-Roman models, the work is characterized by an expert architectonic composition with pilasters that frame a painting of Our Lady with the Baby Jesus, and the tympanum with small figures of angels. Other angels are placed on the base. The ciborium concludes with a high attic which is decorated, among other things, with a festoon.

Tomb Monument of Sixtus IV Dalmatic of Charlemagne Column from the Constantinian Basilica Frame of the Veronica Ciborium of 1432
Angel Model in Clay by Bernini Reliquary of the Holy Cross Bronze Rooster from the Bell Tower of the Old Basilica
