Church of Saint Anastasia, Verona: Interior, nave looking towards altar
Designed by the Dominican friars Fra Benvenuto da Imola and Fra Nicola da Imola. It took its name from a pre-existing temple built by King Theoderic the Great. Since 1307, it is in fact co-entitled to St. Peter of Verona, martyr and co-patron of the city. Unfinished, the façade is mostly in brickwork, with a rose window. The Pellegrini Chapel (ca. 1430) houses the late International Gothic fresco of St. George and the Princess of Trebizond by Pisanello as well as the grave of Wilhelm von Bibra. The apse was finished in 1432.
