Monastery, Santa Maria degli Angeli, Florence

During the early part of the Renaissance, this monastery was known for the high-quality manuscripts and other works created by its scriptorium. It was in this monastery that the famed artist, Lorenzo Monaco, entered monastic life. The so-called Rotonda degli Scolari, partially built by Filippo Brunelleschi, is part of the complex.
