Description

The Scrovegni Chapel

Frescoed between 1303 and 1305 by Giotto, upon the commission of Enrico degli Scrovegni, the Scrovegni Chapel is considered one of the most important masterpieces of Western art.

The frescoes cover the entire internal walls and narrate events in the lives of the Virgin Mary and Christ; on the wall opposite the altar, the grandiose Universal Judgement concludes the story of human salvation.

The chapel was originally attached to the Scrovegni family palace, which was built after 1300 following the elliptical outline of the remains of the Roman arena. After the Chapel was acquired by the City of Padova in 1880, the vulnerable Giotto’s frescoes were subjected to several specialized restorations during the 19th and 20th centuries. From the 1970s until today, thanks to close collaboration between the city administration, cultural heritage authorities and the Istituto Centrale per il Restauro, the state of the building, the quality of the air inside the Chapel, polluting factors and the state of conservation of the frescoes themselves have all been subjected to careful study and monitoring. The addition of a new access building, with its special air-conditioned waiting-room, allows a high number of visitors to enter the Chapel and admire Giotto's masterpiece without further jeopardizing its fragile condition in any way. The latest checks have shown that the condition of the frescoes is now stable. This has been further restoration actions possible, undertaken by the Istituto Centrale per il Restauro thanks to an agreement between the City of Padova and the Italian Ministero per i Beni e le Attività Culturali.
