Pulpit: Santa Croce, Florence
Benedetto da Maiano (1442-1497) was commissioned by the wealthy banker Pietro Mellini to create a funeral monument in the form of a pulpit.
The pulpit was constructed from marble in the period 1472-1476.
The reliefs of the pulpit represent scenes from the life of the Franciscans.
