Warm Season's Greetings from Chris the Guide!
This card shows three paintings by Cola d'Amatrice (1480-1547). This very talented painter, after centuries of oblivion has been rediscovered and properly studied in the last fifty years revealing a very complex inventiveness and great technical skills as painter and architect as well. His name reveals also his city of birth, Amatrice, one of the cities dramatically damaged by the earthquakes of August and September 2016.
May his revival be an auspice of rebirth and a reminder of the tragedy that occurred
Hoping in a fast reconstruction and in a peaceful return to normal life we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2017
