Medici Chapels and the new Sacristy

In the complex of San Lorenzo, the two sacristies that close the ancient basilica on the sides, built by Brunelleschi according to the dictates of sacred architecture, hide secret symbolisms under their skillful decorations.

The Old Sacristy, Michelangelo’s first architectural work, is a real masterpiece where sculpture and architecture blend together in accordance with a deep Neoplatonic thought.

The artistic perfection of the New Sacristy stages profound hermetic concepts, where the death of the bodies becomes the resurrection of the souls.
