Long Description:
"The ancient romanesque church, of Early Christian origin, is dedicated to the Roman martyr St. Felicity. The Vasari corridor runs above the portico outside the façade, connecting the Palazzo Vecchio with the Pitti Palace: by means of a special grating at the back of the church, members of the Grand Ducal court were ableto assist at Mass. Inside, the nave and transept were restructured in the 18th century by the architect Ferdinando Ruggieri and are filled with works of art. In the Capponi Chapel (to the right of the entrance), built for the Barbadori family by Brunelleschi, there are masterpieces by Pontormo, the great exponent of early Florentine Mannerism. The 14th century Chapter Room and the 15th century sacristy should also be visited."
