I traveled to Italy for about two weeks last summer. In Italy I felt that the church was playing the role like a museum. There are a lot of churches in Italy, and the wall paintings there were solemn and divine.

Especially, the church in the town named Padua located near Venice left me with a strong impression.

Fresco painting masterpieces by the famous Italian artist Giotto extended all over the church, and I was overwhelmed.

Through this travel, I understood that religion and art were strongly related.

Thanks for reading.
