  • I knew little Gaudenzio Ferrari but now, found his work here in Santa Maria and on the sacred mountain, I consider it as one of the greatest masters of the era. A visit to "wall gaudenziana" is certainly worth a trip! Great experience, great opportunity to know and to deepen relatively unknown aspects of the history of art. Recommended to everyone, not just the experts.
