Owner description: The small church of Santa Felicita was used by the Medici family dukes and holds the Mannerist artist Pontormo's masterpiece, "The Deposition." The unusual colors, exaggerated poses and expressive portraits are an unforgettable theatrical scene..

Very different paintings and quite simple in comoarison with most here. Worth a visit before crossing back over the river.

Please, stop and visit this church: look on the altarpiece and you will see a wonderful fresco, a model till the contemporary time. A "Deposition from the cross" from Pontormo. This painter came after leonardo and Michelangelo and had to do something different and, in my opinion, he succesfully made something original and comparable with the other masters. Look at the modern color (actually his style was called the "modern fashion"), not the primary yellow, red and blue of the first renaissance but intermediate tones, the positions (the bodies are in unstable positions and contorted), the expressions (finally pains and sufferance enter in the paintings), and atmosphere: unnatural and out of the time. It worth 10 minutes you just to look at this single painting.

Stumbled across this beautiful church.
It's very non-descript from the outside.
But inside, as we arrived at 17:00, there was the rosary been said. This gave what is a beautiful church inside already , an extra appeal..
Worth walking in if your walking past.

The vigil on the night before Good Friday - Catholic mass - and the remarkable juxtaposition of Pontormo's beautiful Annunciation and bizarre. richly-hued Deposition - made this an unforgettable moment in a city that's filled with them.
