  • The fresco is overrated, because of fouls hanging on a tree. According to an opinion that I share, it is a representation of witches: the terror of castration was present in the myths and prejudices at the time. Women who appear in the foreground seem peaceful beings. Certainly it is a work that has no other examples so it's a curiosity to visit.

  • You can watch it but that one does not have. Illuminated at night, you should have it but in an old, original.

  • The source of abundance is not an isolated example of painting "salacious" of the middle ages, indeed especially in certain traditions of different countries come together somehow related examples in the subject (see for example the external sculptures of the Cathedral of Modena, which were still a purpose "educational". What is singular (and I don't know if it's always been in this case) is that the fresco (?) is now public. It appears he was in derision of another Town close by, but I didn't have time. Still funny and altogether naïve in his way of being direct. To see.

  • The source of abundance, also called fountain of penises, is a medieval allegory, probably says some political and historical fact Empire hanging hagiographic this strange tree and contended there are male sexual organs and Imperial eagles flying, was ordered by a Pisan podestà of Imperial tendencies.

  • Represents an important step in the history of Massa Marittima. Exuding the bizarre allegories of yesteryear

  • I expected more from the premises ... fresco representing the city, to understand it need to know the historical value of the place. Painting with symbols "details" ...
