Commemorative coin featuring Giotto di Bondone.
Acquired in Italy in the 60's
Comes in its own box
Giotto di Bondone (Giotto son of Bondone), one of the greatest exponents in the History of Painting, of which he could be declared Father founder in modern times, was born at Colle di Vespignano, a village near Vicchio di Mugello and not far from Florence in Tuscany, in 1267. His birthdate is taken from the testimony of Antonio Pucci who, in 1373, wrote that Giotto died in 1337 at the age of seventy. Vasari declared his birthdate as 1276, but this however seems unlikely. -
