San Lorenzo, Florence

The two pulpits with eleven panels in the nave of the Basilica of San Lorenzo are Donatello's last works. The chronology is known because the date "1465 adi 15 Gug" (on 15 June 1465) was traced on the ledge of the northern pulpit to the left of the Martyrdom of St Lawrence.

The photo shows the Passion Pulpit (left) and the Resurrection Pulpit (right) in the southern and northern sides of the nave, respectively.
