A small church interior has been converted into a showcase for an artwork based around multiple renditions of a gorgeous, abstract, sculpture of the Virgin Mary, designed to be held in the hand. We happened across this by accident, and were delighted we did.

Fell into this church tucked away on a back street of Assisi. After the crowded, tourist-filled famous cathedral, this was an oasis for the mind and spirit. Beautifully explained by a devotee of the artist and his work, this installation will warm your heart and...More
