⛪️ Thursday: we visited an Orthodox Church with the summer camp-kids, which was actually really interesting. And the church was really impressive on the inside - stunning, and colourful, Frescoes covering every inch of the walls, and a beutiful iconostasis. Amazing experience. ✝️
Italy, Aramengo. Placing the Bedeschini’s painting Il miracolo della vera croce in a new room of the labs.
The Nicolas are an ancient, renowned family of restorers. They've been active in the field, working on paintings, frescoes and statues, for over 50 years now. In their laboratory in Aramengo some of the most important Italian and international masterpieces have been brought back to life: from Tiziano to Tintoretto, from the Egyptian mommies to the Turin Shroud. After the 2009 earthquake which destroyed L'Aquila the Nicolas very keen to art as well as to human and social catastrophes- decided to rescue a painting named Il miracolo della vera croce by G.C. Bedeschini located in the San Francesco da Paola church and ravaged by the seism.
We are actively engaged in promoting initiatives which not only preserve and champion culture heritage but also support creativity, talent and innovation. We consider this “a way of life” – a consistent reality that shifts and transforms countries, businesses and the entire community and recognise that art is a powerful driver of knowledge and growth.
Ma le mie foto cos'hanno in meno delle altre? Perché a ogni pubblicazione perdo 1-2 follower? È abbastanza frustrante questo meccanismo, ma andrò avanti per la mia strada. Se non vi convince nemmeno un affresco come questo (Palazzi dei Rolli, Genova) avete qualcosa che non va 😏
P.S.: dopo questa foto, mi aspetto di svegliarmi con almeno 5 follower in meno. Su! Andatevene! Vade retro followerS (con la s sibilante)!!
Lutheran Cellar at Sevnica Castle.
Located on a partially manmade terrace protruding from the eastern edges of #castle#hill , surprisingly little is known about the origins of the so-called #Lutheran#Cellar , as records of its construction were either not documented at the time or have not survived to the present day. However, judging from its architectural style it is known that the building dates from the middle of the 16th century, and served as a Lutheran #chapel for the then newly emerging #Protestant#religion - which in itself is quite a coup given that the castle grounds were owned by the Archdiocese of Salzburg at the time. This leads historians to believe that the cellar was #secretly built on the orders of #Baron Janez Khisl, who was the tenant at the time and known as fierce proponent of #Lutheranism .
While the #exterior resembles an #ordinary#farm#building , the large vaulted #interior is decorated with some of the most #impressive#Renaissance#frescoes in #Slovenia , which were likely executed by an unknown artist at the beginning of the 17th century. In later years the cellar was later used as a #tomb for some of Sevnica's #lords and #noblemen . Nowadays the building hosts various #concerts and other #cultural events.
