Dear friends, do not miss this unique opportunity to admire these painted icons.
As you know, the painted icons are unique and exclusive pieces.
FACE OF THE MOTHER OF GOD
Icon from Romania. Hand painted on a wooden board with natural pigments, egg tempera and 24k gold leaf.
This icon depicts the face of the Mother of God and is actually a detail of the icon of the Annunciation.
MOTHER OF GOD OF TENDERNESS
Icon from Greece. Hand painted on a wooden board with natural pigments, egg tempera and 24k gold leaf.
 The icon of the Mother of God of Tenderness is one of the most loved and widespread models. This way of representing Mary with such a humanized attitude spread after the ninth century, when the need was felt to depict the Mother of God with a sensitivity closer to human feelings.
SAN DEMETRIO DI TESSALONICA
Icon from Russia. Hand painted on a wooden board with natural pigments, egg tempera and 24k gold leaf.
A deacon or a soldier? Historical sources do not reveal it with certainty, but St. Demetrius of Thessalonica remains one of the most represented and venerated saints both in the Church of the East and in that of the West.
We remind you that from 1 August it is possible to visit the center from 9.30 to 15.00.
