Amongst them, the Crucifix by Giotto and the Angels by Guariento originally created for the adjacent Scrovegni Chapel one of the greatest artworks of all times. Completely frescoed by Giotto between 1303 and 1305 is now perfectly preserved thanks to very complex restoration and the beauties it offers to visitors worth alone the trip to Padova, illustrates the life of Mary, the life of Jesus, the Passion of Jesus and the Last Judgement that scared and impressed viewer for centuries, for its realism.
