Just before the intersection between via S. Biagio dei Librai a via Tribunali, we are in front of the entrance of the Church of S. Lorenzo Maggiore. Here two glass showcases are preserved which contain hundred hulls of walnut-tree with inside small scenes of cribs and of biblical inspiration. If you ask information it will be probable to have as answer that there, in the church, there is nothing… don’t believe it: you have to ask for the Capitular Room. Very interesting in this church is a representation of school of Giotto of a nativity with the Madonna on the bed of the birth and the washing of Jesus. With a lot of probabilities it is one of the few canvas in which the Nativity is represented so out of the schemes.
