【Roaming‧行腳】San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore in Milan

San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore - PosterIt 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。

    真的是一份美麗的意外!
    不知是否只是加拿大有這樣的規矩,基本上很多教堂除了特定日期外都不開放參觀,更不允許拍照,所以我們常只能對著教堂大門扼腕。更別說更多時候,即便進到教堂參觀,卻發現不允許拍照!所以每次看到這麼美麗的教堂壁畫,都是一份美麗的驚喜呢!:)

    嗯~ 義大利的教堂也不是所有的都開放,我猜是因為教堂內多有百年藝術品,不開放給大眾參觀實在可惜,所以我們才得以進入教堂欣賞呢!其實有許多教堂內部也是不允許拍照的,因為有些教堂也還正常地進行禮拜彌撒,老是有人拿著相機走來走去也是有點不太尊敬
    不過有些則是為了保護文物,順便兼賣紀念明信片啦~
