Rucellai Chapel

In the second half of the 14th century, through the initiative of Giovanni di Paolo Rucellai, distinguished member of the family giving patronage to the main chapel of the church, brought to light a side chapel – the first, on the west side of the church – one of the “wonders” of the florentine renaissance, the tomb of the Holy Sepulcher, a jewel of Leon Battista Alberti.  The tomb of the sepulcher was located in the first chapel on the left side of the church and connected with the main nave by means of an elegant triforio formed by two sleek corinthian columns surmounted by a beaded frieze.
