    ... Grotta di Leo. Susan who was from the USA but now lives in a small town south of Florence and we met when she was the resident artist at a hotel in Chianti when we visited there in 2012. We then returned to the room to rest before going for a walk around town actually along the river. I gave Laura a tour of Ghirlandaio's work in the Sassetti Chapel of the Church of Santa Trinita. He is my favorite artist of the fifteenth century a time known as the Early Renaissance. ...
