Hey ! A great place there, under the Duomo. I'll be coming over to visit and see it...OMG !!! You won't be there....

HOW wierd..


HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MISSY PANTS!!! No longer will you be half my age, old lady !!


Your photos are always so gorgeous, and your commentary great.
Just a comment...I am pretty sure that the second Old Testament panel you refer to is not the creation of wine (not in scripture), but the inebriation of, I believe, Noah...there is a crazy story in Genesis about his getting drunk and he mistakenly sleeping with a family member (!),...have to check my art history and theology notes.
Anyhow, great job on a beautiful blog!

Boots in the Oven

Auntie, thanks for the birthday wishes! Are you really planning a trip back here? Do you want to wait for a year and plan a trip to somewhere in Southeast Asia? (Shhhh....)

Tom, thank you so much for the kind comment! I think you're right about that panel referencing Noah (we saw a GREAT fresco of drunk Noah exposing himself last weekend in San Gimignano). Thanks for catching that!
