THE COPY of the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua that is being exhibited at the Bratislava castle shows beauty of this, Giotto di Bondone's most important work



Padova
                                  Scrovegni Chapel in Padua


The copy is a 1:4 ratio
scale model that makes it possible to admire every detail of the frescoes that have been copied from the original. The frescos are even easier to see thanks to the copy's smaller size. The model communicates the original's beauty and serves as an encouragement to visit Padua to see the original

Gianfranco Martinoni, the exhibition's author, came to Bratislava to introduce the Giotto exhibition personally

He has been travelling with the project since its beginning in 1987, when the world celebrated the 650th anniversary of the death of Giotto (1267-1337). The frescoes from the Scrovegni Chapel are not only a jewel of Padua but should be introduced to the whole world
