It includes a famous cycle of frescoes by the Renaissance master Benozzo Gozzoli, painted in 1459-1461.The chapel is on the piano nobile of the palace, and was one of the first decorations executed after the completion of the edifice by Michelozzo. #Gozzoli painted his cycle over three of the walls, the subject being the Journey of the Magi to Bethlehem, but the religious theme was a pretext to depict the procession of important people who arrived in #Florence in occasion of the Council of Florence (1438-1439).
