Masaccio (actually mostly Masolino's) expulsion of Adam and Eve from the garden of Paradise. One of the earliest and most important frescoes of the Florentine Renaissance.
Worth every bit of the 5000 lire entry charge. Now its probably 5 euros with all the conversion inflation Italy has become famous for.
The frescoes in the Brancacci Chapel were begun by Masolino and Masaccio, and finished by Filippo Lippi after the latter’s death. There are twelve scenes, starting with The Original Sin and up to the Scenes from the Life of Saint Peter. The most famous of all are the dramatic Expulsion and The Tribute Money.
