The church was dedicated to Santa Maria della Carità at the Feast of the Annunciation, 1303, and consecrated in 1305 Giotto's fresco cycle focuses on the life of the Virgin Mary and celebrates her role in human salvation A motet by Marchetto da Padova appears to have been composed for the dedication on 25 March 13051 The chapel is also known as the Arena Chapel because it was built on land purchased by Enrico Scrovegni that abutted the site of a Roman arena The space was where an open-air procession and sacred representation of the Annunciation to the Virgin had been played out for a generation before the chapel was built


Building and decorationedit

Cast of Giovanni Pisano's effigy of Enrico Scrovegni, in the chapel

The Arena Chapel was commissioned from Giotto by the affluent Paduan banker, Enrico Scrovegni In the early 1300s Enrico purchased from Manfredo Dalesmanini the area on which the Roman arena had stood Here he had his luxurious palace built, as well as a chapel annexed to it The chapel's project was twofold: to serve as the family's private oratory and as a funerary monument for himself and his wife Enrico commissioned Giotto, the famous Florentine painter, to decorate his chapel Giotto had previously worked for the Franciscan friars in Assisi and Rimini, and had been in Padua for some time, working for the Basilica of Saint Anthony in the Sala del Capitolo and in the Blessings's Chapel

A number of 14th-century sources Riccobaldo Ferrarese, Francesco da Barberino, 1312-1313 testify to Giotto's presence at the Arena Chapel's site The fresco cycle can be dated with a good approximation to a series of documentary testimonies: the purchase of the land took place on 6 February 1300; the bishop of Padua, Ottobono dei Razzi, authorised the building some time prior to 1302 the date of his transferral to the Patriarcato of Aquileia; the chapel was first consecrated on 25 March 1303, the feast day of the Annunciation; on 1 March 1304 Pope Benedict XI granted an indulgence to whoever visited the chapel; one year later on 25 March 1305 the chapel received its definitive consecration Giotto's work thus falls in the period from 25 March 1303 to 25 March 1305

Interior of the chapel, towards entrance Towards the apse and altar

Giotto, who was born around 1267, was 36–38 years old when he worked at Enrico Scrovegni's chapel He had a team of about 40 collaborators, and they calculated that 625 work days giornati were necessary to paint the chapel A "work day" meant that portion of each fresco that could be painted before the plaster dried and was no longer "fresh" fresco in Italian

In January 1305, friars from the nearby Church of the Eremitani filed a complaint to the bishop, protesting that Scrovegni had not respected the original agreement Scrovegni was transforming his private oratory into a church with a bell tower, thus producing unfair competition with the Eremitani's activities We do not know what happened next, but it is likely that, as a consequence of this complaint, the monumental apse and the wide transept were demolished Both are visible on a model of the church painted by Giotto on the counter-facade the Last Judgement The apse was the section where Enrico Scrovegni had meant to have his tomb The presence of frescoes dating to after 1320 supports the demolition hypothesis proposed by Giuliano Pisani The apse, the most significant area in all churches, is where Enrico and his wife, Lacopina d'Este, were buried

This apse presents a narrowing of the space which gives a sense of its being incomplete and inharmonious When one observes the lower frame of the triumphal arch, right above Saint Catherine of Alexandria's small altar piece, Giotto's perfect symmetry is altered by a fresco decoration representing two medallions with busts of female saints, a lunette with Christ in glory, and two episodes from the Passion the prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane and the Flagellation of Christ, which together give an overall sense of disharmony The artist who painted these scenes also painted the greater part of the apse, an unknown artist called "The Master of the Scrovegni Choir" who worked at the Chapel about twenty years after Giotto's work was completed The main focus of the unknown artist's work is constituted by six monumental scenes on the side walls of the chancel that depict the last period of Mary's earthly life This choice is in tune with the iconographic program inspired by Alberto da Padova and painted by Giotto

Modern periodedit

The chapel was originally connected with the Scrovegni palace, which was built on what remained of the foundations of the elliptical ancient Roman arena The palace was demolished in 1827 in order to sell the precious materials it contained and to erect two condominiums in its place The chapel was purchased by the Municipality of the City of Padua in 1881, a year after the City Council's deliberation of 10 May 1880 leading to a decision to demolish the condominiums and restore the chapel

In June 2001, following a preparation study lasting over 20 years, the Istituto Centrale per il Restauro Central Institute for Restoration of the Ministry for Cultural Activities, in collaboration with Padua's Town Hall in its capacity of owner of the Arena Chapel, started a full-scale restoration of Giotto's frescoes under the late Giuseppe Basile's technical direction In 2000 the consolidation and restoration of the external surfaces had been completed and the adjacent "Corpo Tecnologico Attrezzato" CTA had been installed In this "equipped technological chamber" visitors wait for fifteen minutes to allow their body humidity to be lowered and any accompanying smog dust to be filtered out In March 2002 the chapel was reopened to the public in its original splendor A few problems remain unsolved, such as flooding in the crypt under the nave due to the presence of an underlying aquifer, and the negative effect on the building's stability of the cement inserts that replaced the original wooden ones in the 1960s

Scholarly debatesedit

Giuliano Pisani's studies argued that a number of commonly held beliefs concerning the chapel are groundless, among them, the notion that Dante inspired Giotto Another claim was that the theological program followed by Giotto is based on St Thomas Aquinas, whereas Pisani claims it to be wholly Augustinian Pisani also argued against the conjecture that the Frati Gaudenti fraternity, of which Enrico Scrovegni was a member, influenced the content of Giotto's fresco cycle2 He also argued against the belief that Enrico Scrovegni required that the iconography program have no emphasis placed on the sin of usury Giuliano Pisani pointed out that Dante's condemnation of Scrovegni's father, Reginaldo, as a usurer in Canto 17 of the Inferno dates to a few years after Giotto's completion of the chapel, so it cannot be regarded as a motive behind any theological anxieties on the part of Enrico Scrovegni It must be noted that Pisani's arguments have not yet been widely embraced by the scholarly community, and that debates persist regarding the impetus for the chapel's creation and the reasons behind its design

According to Pisani,3 Giotto painted the chapel's inner surface following a comprehensive iconographic and decorative project devised by the Augustinian theologian, Friar Alberto da Padova Among the sources utilized by Giotto following Friar Alberto's advice are the Apocryphal Gospels of Pseudo-Matthew and Nicodemus, the Golden Legend Legenda aurea by Jacopo da Varazze Jacobus a Varagine and, for a few minute iconographic details, Pseudo-Bonaventure's Meditations on the Life of Jesus Christ, as well as a number of Augustinian texts, such as De doctrina Christiana, De libero arbitrio, De Genesi contra Manicheos, De quantitate animae, and other texts from the Medieval Christian tradition, among which is the Phisiologus4

Most Giotto scholarship believes that Giotto had made a number of theological mistakes For instance, Giotto placed Hope after Charity in the Virtues series, and did not include Avarice in the Vices series, due to the usual representation of Enrico Scrovegni as a usurer Giuliano Pisani asserts that Giotto followed a careful and deliberate theological programme based on Saint Augustine and devised by Friar Alberto da Padova Avarice, far from being "absent" in Giotto's cycle, is portrayed with Envy, forming with it a fundamental component of a more comprehensive sin For this reason Envy is placed facing the virtue of Charity, to indicate that Charity is the exact opposite of Envy, and that in order to cure oneself of the sin of Envy one needs to learn from Charity Charity crushes Envy's money bag under her feet, while on the opposite wall red flames burn under Envy's feet5

The depiction of the sacred stories, and the message of the vaultedit

The scene of the Lamentation of Christ The centre of the vault, with Madonna and Child as one of the two suns, and prophets as planets

Giotto frescoed the chapel's whole surface, including the walls and the ceiling The fresco cycle is organised along four tiers, each of which contains episodes from the stories of the various protagonists of the Sacred History Each tier is divided into frames, each forming a scene The chapel is asymmetrical in shape, with six windows on the longer south wall, and this shape determined the layout of the decoration The first step was choosing to place two frames between each double window set on the south wall; secondly, the width and height of the tiers was fixed in order to calculate the same space on the opposite north wall

Cycles of scenes showing the Life of Christ and the Life of the Virgin were the grandest form of religious art in the period, and Giotto's cycle is unusually large and comprehensive, showing the ambition of the commission Allowing for this, the selection and iconography of the scenes is broadly comparable to other contemporary cycles; Giotto's innovation lies in the monumentality of his forms and the clarity of his compositions

The cycle recounts the story of salvation It starts from high up on the lunette of the triumphal arch, with the uncommon scene of God the Father instructing the Archangel Gabriel to perform the Annunciation to Mary6 The narrative continues with the stories of Joachim and Anne first tier from the top, south wall and the stories of Mary first tier from the top, north wall After a return to the triumphal arch, the scenes of the Annunciation and the Visitation follow The stories of Christ were placed on the middle tier of the south and north walls The scene of Judas receiving the money to betray Jesus is on the triumphal arch The lower tier of the south and north walls shows the Passion and Resurrection; the last frame on the north wall shows the Pentecost The fourth tier begins at ground level with the monochromes of the Vices north wall and the Virtues south wall The west wall counter-façade presents the Last Judgment

  • The Last Judgment

The vault presents the eighth day, the time of eternity, God’s time, with eight planets the tondos which enclose the seven great prophets of the Old Testament plus John the Baptist and two suns which show God and the Madonna and Child, while the blue sky is studded with eight-point stars 8, sideways, symbolises infinity

The monochrome allegories of Vices and Virtuesedit

The bottom tiers of the longer walls feature 14 allegories, in monochrome, symbolising Vices on the north wall and Virtues on the south wall The Vices are Stultitia, Inconstantia, Ira, Iniusticia, Infidelitas, Invidia, and Desperatio The Virtues are grouped as follows: the four cardinal virtues: Prudentia, Iustitia, Temperantia, Fortitudo, followed by the three theological ones: Fides, Karitas, Spes Each virtue and vice is embedded within a mirror-like marble frame The name of the vice or the virtue is written in Latin on top of each figure, indicating what these figures represent, namely, the seventh day the time between Jesus’s birth and the Final Judgement

According to the controversial theory of Giuliano Pisani, the Vices and Virtues read starting from the altar’s side, going towards the counter-façade Final Judgement, and the sequence is not "Vices first, then Virtues" as was long believed It rather proceeds from Vice 1 Stultitia north wall, right hand side to Virtue 1 Prudencia south wall, left hand side, to Vice 2 Inconstantia north wall to Virtue 2 Fortitudo south side, and so on Vices and Virtues symbolise humanity’s progress toward bliss heavenly happiness With the aid of Virtues, humanity can overcome obstacles Vices This is the philosophical-theological itinerary designed by Giotto’s theologian, a learned theologian who drew his inspiration from Saint Augustin The Vice-Virtue section of the Arena Chapel illustrates the philosophical-theological message underlying the overall project and is key to clarifying several points previously considered to be either obscure or the result of Giotto’s only approximate theological knowledge7 For instance, in the Arena Chapel the vices are not the traditional capital vices or deadly sins Pride, Envy, Wrath, Sloth, Greed, Gluttony and Lust, just like the "corresponding" virtues do not reflect the traditional order, consisting in four "cardinal virtues" Prudence, Justice, Fortitude and Temperance and three "theological virtues" Faith, Hope and Charity

A twofold therapeutic path leading to salvation is presented The first, composed of four virtues, brings a cure by means of the opposing force provided by the cardinal virtues The arrival point in this first part of the itinerary is Justice, Iusticia, who makes peace possible and therefore ensures Paradise on earth and earthly happiness The first Vice in this first section is Stultitia, namely the incapacity to distinguish good and evil Its cure opposite wall is Prudencia, Prudence, which in classical and theological terms is not "cautiousness" but "moral intelligence" or the capacity to distinguish good and evil The viewer is in the sphere of Knowledge Next comes the pair Inconstantia, Inconstancy, north wall and Fortitudo, Fortitude, south wall Fortitude moral and mental strength triumphs over Inconstancy’s lewd oscillations by means of will "Inconstancy" is literally "the lack of a stable seat"; it is a mix of light-headedness, volubility, and inconsistency "Inconstancy" is portrayed as a young woman rolling over a ball, ready to fall, on a motley marble floor signifying the lack of "unity" "constancy" which characterises an inconstant mind Here is the sphere of Will Wrath, the third vice, is "tempered" by Temperantia, Temperance According to Saint Augustine, Temperantia is the inner balance which ensures the will’s stable dominion over instincts and keeps human desires within the boundaries of honesty It is the therapy necessary to prevail over passions, which are symbolised by Wrath, because Wrath is the most perilous of all the passions: it is sudden and destructive, even against own’s dearest ones, and is therefore the passion that human beings first need to learn how to control This notion is a tenet of ancient Greek and in its footprints Roman philosophy, which Saint Augustin made his own and Giotto’s theologian transmitted to him, fusing together a number of Saint Augustin’s writings

Prudence, Fortitude and Temperance pertain to each individual’s ethical sphere of action and have as their goal the cure of each individual "self" Ethical virtue takes form in practical application, through action and behaviour that pertain both to the personal and the social sphere and affect human relations The notions of Justice and Injustice, the central "pair" in Giotto’s Arena Chapel, emanate from this notion Justice’ perfect centrality is visually emphasized by an architectural "die", a small cube that runs above each of the various personifications in a slightly slanted way, pointing either toward the apse or the counter-façade, everywhere but above the head of Justice south wall and Injustice north wall, where the small die falls in a perpendicular line, marking at the same time the exact physical half of the chapel as well as Justice’s curing function from a theological-philosophical viewpoint, without forgetting that Justice is what cures the soul of the sickening effects of Injustice on the chapel’s other side

Those who have successfully progressed in their therapeutic path have attained Justice Those who have not, have attained Injustice Those who have attained Justice have practiced a soul’s therapy that can be defined as "human" and that led them to earthly happiness They used as their therapy the "medicina animi", the "soul’s medicine" provided by the cardinal virtues in the sequence Prudence-Fortitude-Temperance-Justice, namely the moral and intellectual virtues with whose "medicine" human beings can be cured of, and are able to prevail over, the opposing vices

Next come the theological virtues In order to be able to aspire to heavenly Paradise one needs divine teaching, the revelation of truth, with which one overcomes and transcends human reason, and to practice the theological virtues The "divine therapy" begins with the rejection of false beliefs Infidelitas through Faith in God Fides Only with the "medicine" of Charity Karitas can man overcome Selfishness and Envy Invidia, which lead him to look with malevolent eyes Latin in-vidēre at his neighbour, who is also made by God in His likeness Finally, with the aid the medicine, Hope Spes can be contrasted with Lack of Hope, or Desperation Desperatio Hope is an attitude consisting in actively waiting for God’s future blessings which descend from trust in God and in His word, and also consisting in love, through the love of God, of the whole of humankind

The sources of this extraordinary program were identified by Pisani in a number of passages of Saint Augustine’s works Everything finds a perfect correspondence with something else It is the theme of the "therapy of opposites", the sequential order of the cardinal and theological virtues, and the centrality of Justice
