Early sources attest to Giotto also having worked elsewhere in Padua; namely that he executed a series a paintings of 'zodiacal imagery' in the Palazzo della Ragione (or 'Salone') and more frescoes in the chapter house of the Santo (fragmentary; now considered workshop). A great fire in 1420 destroyed Giotto's frescoes in the Palazzo della Ragione, though succeeding generations have attempted to restore them.
