The marble gothic shrine to the Dominican Saint Peter Martyr (1205-1252) was executed by Giovanni di Balduccio of Pisa between 1336 and 1339. It consists of a sarcophagus supported on pilasters, in front of which are statues representing the Virtues. It was transferred to the Portinari Chapel in 1774 from the nave of the basilica.
