A high place of romanic art in Northern Italy
Jun 2015 • Solo
This is a sercet chirch which is holding a special place in the Romanic art amateur. lost in the middle of the fields, surrounded by mountains and hills, the pure essence of romanic art is expressed in this contained church, the walls of which have no trace left of ancient frescoes. There is here a particular spirit of meditation. probably once surrounded by wooden lodgings, the small church stands alone in fields of grass, telling a lot about the evolution and the disappearing of human traces on the earth and the epehemeral character of human activity. Yest its proportions and its bell tell something about everlasting beauty , but in a humble manner. i personnally prefer this king of stone testimony to the grand and sophisticated architectures often found in churches. may we preserve the San Secondo Church, it comes as a reminder that men can build beautiful when turned to prayer, even though they area small community. It is precious to remember this.
