La presente pubblicazione è dedicata advert uno dei più grandi artisti italiani del Trecento: Giotto (1267?-1337). Giovanissimo lavora nella bottega di Cimabue, ma in breve diventa uno degli artisti più contesi della penisola. Lascia i suoi capolavori in San Francesco advert Assisi, nella cappella degli Scrovegni a Padova, in Santa Croce a Firenze. È l'artefice di un rinnovamento radicale del linguaggio in pittura: è il discrimine tra l'arte medievale e los angeles rinascita di una cultura figurativa improntata all'osservazione del reale, al punto che si può affermare che le vicende dell'arte italiana abbiano un "prima" e un "dopo" Giotto.
