The Bernardo chapel
Our Lady of Good Health
This chapel was built in 1482 by the Bernardo family and presents a precious polyptych by Bartolomeo Vivarini, portraying the Virgin Enthroned with the Child on Her knee. The work is set on the altar within a rich and graceful Renaissance frame, and was renamed Madonna della Salute ( Our Lady of Good Health ) after the plague of 1631. In the upper part of the polyptych is the painting of the Dead Christ. Lorenzetti judged the whole work as " strongly stylised with vigorous use of colour ". On the right-hand wall you may have a look at a beautiful Gothic urn dedicated in 1500 to Girolamo and Lorenzo Bernardo, likely to be a work by Dalle Masegne.
