Santa Croce Frescos

A five-year restoration of the frescos inside Basilica di Santa Croce (Basilica of the Holy Cross) in Florence has been completed. The scaffolding and lift will remain in place for another year to allow visitors to ascend to the ceiling for a closer look at the restored frescos. Click the title link for a BBC News video. Above is Saint Matthew flanked by cherubs. On the left is the brilliant front of the Basilica di Santa Croce. Tate Margate, eat your heart out. They knew how to build architectural wonders in those days.
