One of the stained glass windows in the church of Santa Maria dell' Orto depicts the monogram of the Virgin Mary.
The monogram, which takes the form of the intertwined letters 'V' and 'M', is made up of various fruits. The window was financed by the guild of fruit-sellers (Università dei Fruttaroli).
