Basilica di Santa Maria Novella
Sporting Alberti's magnificent black-and-white marble facade and ranks of striped columns down the nave, this striking Dominican church was begun in 1246. The wealth of art inside includes frescoes by Domenico Ghirlandaio, Nardo di Cione, and Filippino Lippi and a magnificent crucifix by Giotto. But the most famous work is Masaccio’s groundbreaking study in perspective—his 1427 Trinità fresco on the left wall, which had a revolutionary impact on Renaissance painting.
