"The Scrovegni Chapel"

Giotto’s 14th-century fresco cycle in the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua, Italy, is perhaps the seminal motion picture in Western Art and Dr. Rocky’s favorite work of art! In the frescoes of the chapel, Giotto transformed the iconic, sacred subjects of his contemporary painting world into an incredibly human story – or what could be called the “visual vernacular.” Drama, psychology, movement, suspense, and raw human emotion transform the entire picture cycle into a veritable medieval movie. Buona visione!
