On the four walls of the main space of the Baptistery the story of John the Baptist and scenes from the life of Christ are represented. These walls depict, on the south side, the life of John the Baptist, and on the opposite side, the life of Christ, which in part overlaps with the life of the Baptist.

On the west wall the following scenes are depicted: Presentation of the Virgin (top left), The Annunciation (top middle), The Visitation (top right), Massacre of the Innocents (middle left), votive image with the donor Fina Buzzacarini (middle), Christ among the Doctors (middle right), Christ's Entry into Jerusalem (bottom left), St John the Baptist (bottom middle, this figure is of a later date), The Last Supper (bottom right).
