Monument to Cardinal Pietro Pileo da Prata

Cathedral, Padua

The monument to Cardinal Pietro Pileo da Prata was created in the Dalle Masegne workshop in 1420. The tomb with the marble recumbent figure of the Cardinal is on the left wall of the Chapel of the Holy Sacrament (the fifth chapel in the left arm of the transept).

Pietro Pileo di Prata (or da Prata) (c. 1330-1401) was an Italian bishop and Cardinal. He was a significant diplomat and go-between in the affairs of his times, and was nicknamed the "cardinal with three hats", which he obtained successively from Urban VI, Clement VII, and Boniface IX.
