Thanks Vittorio..

Now some pictures I have collected showing one of the peculiarities of Padua

PADUA CITY OF FRESCOES

Padua keeps a lot of frescoed walls, where light and colour give life to extraordinary illustrated stories. It was Giotto in the first years of the 14th century to give impulse to fresco decoration, narrative painting and monumental cycles.
So Padua became one of the most important Italian art cities where you can find medieval frescoes.
The following pictures show the quality of the painting existing in town.
I'm restricting the selection to the 14th century, which is the most important from the artistic point of view.

GIOTTO - Scrovegni Chapel

Very nice pictures. Really gives me the Italian feeling. Can't wait until my holidays because I'm going to Italy again. I'm going to Tuscany this time, near to Livorno
