Frescoes in Fretta

Hurrying home yesterday, Corrie and I saw a building with its windows torn out, being remodeled. At first it didn't warrant much more than a double-take: a palazzo with empty, glass-less windows letting the breeze flow through seemed like a nice summer remedy. As we got closer though, through the windows you could see the ceilings of the rooms inside. They were no ordinary ceilings: decorated elegantly with brilliant frescoes--circles of light and angels, clouds and flowers, pinks and golds.

All of this hidden behind a plain-front facade, behind pane-less windows, in the dining room of an old woman's house.
