  • The Church is documented since the year 1000: internally in Gothic style with a Renaissance façade. Between 1300 and 1500 the main changes consisted, for the most part, interior decoration, while maintaining its architectural structure. It is dated to the mid fifteen hundreds the most important change that we still see today: despite the arrival of cloistered Dominican nuns, it became necessary to adapt the Church to new demands, in particular the new sacristy were built and, halfway through the Church, the choir raised above, supported by eight columns, with a cross Vault that was intended to make inaccessible to eyes of the faithful the presence of nuns who attended the mass. What is surprising, in a church so small, it is still the presence of so many important works: among others, include: the table "Saint Anthony, Saint Roch and Saint Catherine of Alexandria school" by Botticelli, a "Madonna with Saints" by Ridolfo Ghirlandaio, a "San Nicola, San Giovanni, San Giuliano and San Sigismondo" by Neri di Bicci, a "the Annunciation" by Lorenzo di Bicci , a "deposition" by Ambrogio della Robbia "and especially a magnificent crucifix of Giotto's school. In the sacristy there is also a "last supper" by Matteo Rosselli, unfortunately not visible because it is part of sciola straight from elementary nuns. A little advice: the Church of San Felice in Piazza is situated small distance from Palazzo Pitti; preserve forces for a brief visit, definitely worth it.
