S. Maria Maddalena


The side-light and sun in this church made it feel more like a friendly sitting room than church, especially as two close friends sat at a desk in the sunny doorway chatting peacably.


I was reminded of it the next day in this painting by Vincenzo Campi (Il Sanmartino), in the Museo Civico.



The colours in the painting are the same tones as this wonderfully cheery trompe l’oeil side chapel
