Stigmata of Saint Francis altarpiece

This altarpiece reconstructs the story of the stigmata of Saint Francis who had retreated to La Verna, an isolated area near Arezzo

The representation that the artist makes of Francis, among the rocks of La Verna, is particular powerful precisely because of the Passion of Christ that Francis wanted to embody.
