My Favorite Paintings at Battistero, Padova (Padua), Italy

Next to the city Duomo, the Battistero (Baptistery) in Padova (Padua) contained amazing Fresco cycle by Giusto de Menabuoni, covering the circular wall and the dome.  Brilliant colors and striking composition. Definitely my favorite.

My second favorite work there a Polittico (Polyptych), which presented Madonna con Bambino and other saints in a tiered structure, resembling a gilded palazzo, formal, regal, and impressive, especially the interplay of brilliant blue, red and gold colors.
