The tomb of Michelangelo, "protected" by three sculptures of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture, contends the first part of the Santa Croce Basilica with the tomb of Galileo Galilei, located just opposite. Immediately after Michelangelo is the cenotaph of Dante but his remains, let in Ravenna where he died in exile. In the bottom of the basilica there are the chapels frescoes by Giotto with the Stories of the Life of St. Francis. In the Pazzi Chapel, where Giuliano de Medici was killed and Lorenzo the Magnificent wounded during the famous conspiracy, it is preserved the Crucifix by Cimabue.
