Sant'Angelo a Nilo
Sant'Angelo a Nilo Review
Amid this church's graceful interior can be found the earliest evidence of the Renaissance in Naples: the funerary monument (1426–27) of Sant'Angelo's builder, Cardinal Brancaccio, sculpted by the famous Donatello and the almost-as-famous Michelozzo. The front of the sarcophagus bears Donatello's contribution, a bas-relief Assumption of the Virgin, upheld by angels, the Virgin seeming to float in air. Built in the late 1300s the church was redesigned in the 16th century by Arcangelo Guglielminelli.
