La Festa di San Francesco

 

Descrição: P29

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!
