The Vision of Saint Sorore by Vecchietta (Lorenzo di Pietro)

The Vision of Saint Sorore by Vecchietta (Lorenzo di Pietro)

It is an allegorical fresco depicting the kneeling shoemaker Sororé, who is considered the founder of the hospital, standing in front of his mother, over the head of which the scene of her vision unfolding unfolded before her son was born: The Mother of God surrounded by angels descended from the heavens a staircase that led to the sky under her protection of naked little orphans.

On the right in the niche, he depicted the reliefs of Adam and Eve, and to the left the reliefs of Cain and Abel; they seem to symbolize the original sin and the Old Testament. On the entrance wall of this hospital Vecchietta wrote three scenes from the life of Tobias, but they, unfortunately, did not survive.
