La Festa di San Martino
La Festa di San Francesco
Twin murals painted at the entrance to the wine cellars on a central Italian Estate. 4x3 m each.
Mural painting in Italy is one of the oldest and richest cultural traditions of the western world,
a bit like wine making really. This detail shows an icon of St. Martin, the patron saint of winemakers.
He was a Roman soldier who cut his cloak in two and gave half to a beggar.
It’s bad luck if you drink the new wine before St. Martin’s day!
