Santa Maria sopra Minerva: Tomb of Diotisalvi Neroni

By unknown

Abstract

Detail, left side, showing the "sarcophagus" base; Before the construction of San Giovanni dei Fiorentini, the Minerva was the church of the Florentine nation, and therefore it houses numerous tombs of prelates, nobles and citizens coming from that Tuscan city. Curiously, Diotisalvi Neroni, a refugee who had took part in the plot against Piero de' Medici, was buried here in 1482, and was later joined by other members of the family.
