Buon Natale 2023

Posted by Suzanne Turrisi on 20 Dec 2023


Christmas Greetings

This exquisite image of the Madonna and Child is from the 15th century Flemish triptych housed in the gated side chapel of San Gandolfo in the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore in Polizzi Generosa. It's on via Roma. I love this work attributed to Rogier van der Weyden. It is a hidden gem.

And while it is not a classic Christmas manger scene it captures a sense of the awe.

Buon Natale to All

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year filled with the ease of holidays and celebration.

My blogs about all things Sicily and the occasional travel notes on other spots will return in late March 2024.

My warmest wishes and Buon Natale!
