This essay analyzes, and attributes, a heraldic fresco, until now anonymous, painted in the church of Saint Mary of Casale in Brindisi, one of the most fascinating medieval monuments in Puglia. A detailed intersection of data taken from historical and heraldic sources (books of arms and seals) has made it possible to identify some of the coats of arms depicted in this work and to explain the context of their origin. The hypothesis is that a votive fresco was commissioned in the years 1344-1346 by Geoffroy de Charny – the founder of the church of Lirey in which the Shroud of Turin appeared for the first time – and by other French knights during their journey to and back from the Crusade of Smyrna. In the background we find the great importance of the church and the central role of Brindisi and its port during of the Angevin domination.
