I’m starting a Photo of the Day feature. Sometimes I’ll share my own work & at other times work from others. If you’d like me to share an image of yours, along with a caption and link to your site/social, please get in touch! Comment here or shoot me a note at gina-at-carpeverbum.net
Today’s image is one I took in Pistoia, Italy in fall, 2019. Pistoia is a beautiful medieval down near Florence.
This incredible work of art is The Visitation by Lucca della Robbia. “The Visitation, made for Pistoiaâ€™s church of San Giovanni Fuoricivitas before 1445, is considered the earliest large freestanding statue group in glazed terracotta, a new technique originated by the artist, who was not only the first, but was its most expressive (and impressive) exponent.” From La Repubblica
By the way, I highly recommend a visit to Pistoia. It is a city of treasures in terms of people and points of interest. You won’t be disappointed. Here’s a great resource via Pistoia native Michela Ricciarelli: https://passion4food4fashion.com/
