It wasn’t my intension to visit her when I found San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore; I just got lost when looking for Santa Maria delle Grazie and Da Vinci’s Last Sapper. However this unplanned visit brought me great surprise and till now I’ve visited this church for three times. I’m not satisfied yet because I still plan my further visit.
San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore 是個門面很不起眼的小教堂，那天，我是在找尋達文西的最後的晚餐所在地時，在迷路的途中，意外地發現她的存在。如同所有我在旅途中經歷過的意外一般，她果然也帶給我不小地震撼，讓我對她愛不釋腳，直到今天，我也已經到過這座教堂三次，腦子裡也還在盤算著下次前往的時間。
The reason why I’m addicted to San Maurizio is the frescoes she hosts. All the wall of this church is covered by frescoes which can be traced back to 16th century. I believe that San Maurizio was not the only church decorated by frescoes at that time; I shall think she is probably the only one that keeps most of them till today.
Among all these frescoes, some were painted by Bernardino Luini, an important Milanese painter at the time. Although I didn’t know much about the history of Art, I do know his frescoes make this church glance over the years.
我對 San Maurizio 著迷的原因很簡單，是因為她內部的牆面上，是被 16 世紀的壁畫所覆蓋。我相信這座教堂在當時，一定不是唯一一座用壁畫來作裝飾的教堂，但今日的她，應該是將這些壁畫保存地最完好的一座教堂。在所有的壁畫中，最受人注目的便是由 Bernardino Luini 所畫的那些，事實上，在東牆及中央聖壇的壁畫都是出自他手。雖然我對西方藝術史瞭解得不多，但我相信，他的這些作品是使得這座教堂發出耀眼光芒的緣故。
