Corteo dei Re Magi 1459 fresco



Located on the noble floor of the palace, it was one of the first decorations executed after Michelozzo completed the building , and represents the masterpiece of the Florentine Benozzo Gozzoli , a pupil of Beato Angelico . This small space was the private family chapel and was built in 1459 , in an originally quadrangular shape (today a corner is notched due to the seventeenth-century work on the staircase), with a small apse always square, without windows.


In the three major walls the Cavalcade of the Magi is depicted , which serves as a pretext to represent a precise political subject who gave prestige to the Medici family, that is, the procession with Pope Pius II Piccolomini, and numerous personalities, who arrived in Florence in April of 1458, directed to Mantua. In that city the pontiff had called princes and ecclesiastical authorities to attend a meeting to plan a crusade in defense of Christianity against the Turkish advance in Europe. Pius II was preceded by various Italian princes who stopped in Florence to join the papal retinue: among others, also Galeazzo Maria Sforza, the fifteen-year-old son of Francesco, Duke of Milan, and Sigismondo Malatesta, lord of Rimini, allies of the Medici, who appear portraits within the scene (Acidini, 1993)
