For today's #ThrowbackThursday, let's remember one of the most tumultuous times in Florence's history. In April 7, 1498, an angry mob laid siege to the San Marco Convent and captured Girolamo Savonarola, an influential Dominican friar. Savonarola had influenced the passage of some unpopular laws to erase "vice" in Florence. Today, the convent is now the Museo Nazionale di San Marco. This painting is the The Last Judgment by Fra Angelico, now on display at the museum.
