The murals, commissioned in the Jubilee year 1300 by Benedetto Caetani, at the time Parish priest of the Church San Pietro a Grado, was carried out by Deodato Orlandi, an artist from Lucca who at that time worked at Pisa, from 1300 to 1312 . These frescoes had been covered with plaster from the XV century and were restored by a Florentine, Domenico Fiscali in the years 1885-88.
