I found this exhibition by chance and was amazed. Simple concept executed perfectly. The shape of the wood and other materials is filled with meaning no matter which way you hold or look at it. And the shape of the pieces fits so perfectly into...More

The church is historic and prayerful. But currently it hosts a hugely moving and interesting collection of art devoted to Mary, Queen of Peace. Between alpha and omega, a collection of identically shaped sculptures describe the peace and love of Mary. A lady from the...More

The models of the Madonna in different woods are captivating. Wonderfully explained by the custodian. So different to all the other churches. A very special place.

This exhibition is not one that is shouted about, but it should be (from the rooftops). A spiritual and moving experience.

We came across this church by accident and were charmed to discover the exhibition inside. The assistant explained the significance of the madonna sculpture, which was such a clever and inspired idea for a work of art. We were really impressed.

We stumbled across this permanent exhibition while wandering the streets of Assisi during a pilgrimage tour of Italy. The contrast to the medieval setting is remarkable, however, the continuity with its past is very fitting. If you are a woman, a mother, a Catholic, appreciate...More

A small church interior has been converted into a showcase for an artwork based around multiple renditions of a gorgeous, abstract, sculpture of the Virgin Mary, designed to be held in the hand. We happened across this by accident, and were delighted we did.

When you walk in the door you are greeted with a marvelous art installation. There are layers of meaning in the unusual piece that are explained by a docent as you hold one of the carved pieces in your hand. You need not be religious...More

Fell into this church tucked away on a back street of Assisi. After the crowded, tourist-filled famous cathedral, this was an oasis for the mind and spirit. Beautifully explained by a devotee of the artist and his work, this installation will warm your heart and...More
