Religious Art of Italy

(Musashino, Tokyo, Japan)
Artwork by Italian artist Giotto
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.
