Overview

The cloister was called 'Scalzo' or 'Barefoot' because of the custom of carrying the cross with bare feet in the processions, observed by the Disciples of S. Giovanni Battista. Andrea del Sarto painted the fresco as did Franciabigio in his absence from 1518-19. It was painted from 1507 to 1526 with stories depicting the life of S. Giovanni Battista, the protector of the company.
