Factum Foundation reconstructed the scattered panels of the Griffoni Polyptych. The Griffoni Polyptych is a series of sixteen tempera paintings on poplar panels painted by Francesco del Cossa and Ercole de’ Roberti in the late XV century (1473-1475). The panels were originally located in the Griffoni Chapel in San Petronio Basilica, Bologna, but the altarpiece was removed and sold in the XVIII century.
