Michele da Firenze's terracotta narrative scenes cover the walls of the Pellegrini family chapel in Sant'Anastasia, Verona. This is Michele's first independently documented work and is considered to be his masterpiece. The originally polychromed 24 individual panels depict scenes from the Life, Passion and Death of Christ.

In addition to the terracotta panels, the tomb of Tommaso Pellegrini is on the left wall and the Pellegrini-Bevilacqua tomb on the right wall. The former is the work of Antonio da Mestre (sculpture) and Martino da Verona (fresco), while the latter contains also a fresco by Martino.
