  • Initially we had no idea at the type of treasures that are inside this relatively simple church. The frescos still remaining on most of the walls were really a pleasant surprise.  more »
  • Deconsecrated, now houses temporary exhibitions. The structure is just superb: rough and simple, with a gabled façade and magnificent rose window. Inside the space consists of a single nave that gives a sense of the enormity of space. Here and there on the walls you can see tears of frescoes.

  • The hype for the arrival of this show is absolutely not matching the value of the same. The set up is indeed wasteful, confusing and disorganized in the description of historical events that have no continuity, are in fact filmed several times in the unwinding of exposure leading to great confusion in the visitors. The walls that create the exhibition areas make rough, coarse and somewhat reductive historical descriptions valid for perhaps a compendium middle school school. Resounding the error in the explanation of a vase painted with the effigy of Napoleon, defined as "self portrait of Napoleon" ... the renowned politician, great man of war as well as Emperor, was certainly not painter! The exhibition, entitled to Napoleon, we expect then an exhaustive and complete historical account of his birth, of which do not have the slightest hint. Very few exhibits are actually belonged to Bonaparte (a glass, some dishes and sheets of his lectures in English), the others are all belonged to the family or donated by him. I would also expect a feature article on the Treaty of Campo Formio, well-known historical took place precisely in Friuli, agreed and instead there is only a very brief mention. Finally, I don't recommend watching this show as described and for a price (€10.00 ticket) definitely inappropriate.
