Scuola Grande di San Rocco

Just a couple of shots off the phone from the spectacular building decorated with Tintoretto’s paintings.

It was SO cold when we were there yesterday, and those gorgeous marble floors didn’t make us any warmer!

For Corpus Domini, Spello hosts a major flower art event in the streets. The town goes from being almost empty to having 100 000 visitors in one go. We went out in the middle of the night to watch the families at work, and then braved the crush this morning to see the finished products before the priests etc. destroyed them in their procession.
