An hour rich in beauty and depth: that’s what this tour offers you.

The Frieze of the Ceppo Hospital is a Renaissance masterpiece of Pistoia. It was realized with a particular technique, the ceramic glaze, whose secret was stolen to the lawful possessors, the della Robbia family (from which the frieze derives its name of Robbiano, that means “made as della Robbia family did”); even today, after 500 years, it preserves its beauty and freshness, also thanks to the recent restoration, that revealed the splendor.

The Frieze shows the Seven Works of Mercy: a particular subject chosen in relation with the function of the hospital. Your guide will explain you each scene, why there is this unusual subject and which was its function centuries ago.

Thousands of people have already visited the Frieze after its restoration. And you? What are you waiting for? Beauty is at your fingertips!
