Stained glass windows at the Sanctuary of Loreto, Piazza Della Madonna 1, 60025 Loreto, AN, Italy. In Italy, the use of decorating church windows with figurative windows is an imported phenomenon, which came through the emergence of the Gothic style. For the realization of the windows of the Duomo of Milan, one of the largest existing cycles in Italy, many master glassmakers were brought from Germany and the Flemish countries. An autochthonous window is the Venetian one with rollers (disks). With the prevalence of the Renaissance style, more sensitive to perspective renditions and volumes, the stained-glass window adapted making more and more use of painting. One of the techniques that began to take hold in this period is the grisaglia, used since the fifteenth century. It is an enamel composed of copper oxide and a fondant used to create nuances and give body to figures and decorations. Booking.com

Bastioni Della Fortezza Loreto, 60025 Loreto AN, Italy. The ramparts of the fortress of the Sanctuary of Loreto. The itinerary concerns the imposing defensive system built several times in defense of the Sanctuary of the Holy House of Loreto between 1488 and 1522. Starting from 1453, in fact, when the Turks occupied Constantinople causing the fall of the Eastern Roman Empire, the Muslim presence in the Adriatic became overwhelming, demanding the construction of architectures capable of making the Turkish ships desist from the landing. At the behest of Sixtus IV at first and then at the behest of Leo X at a second, the Sanctuary of Loreto was adequately equipped with unsurpassed fortifications. This impressive military system, which made the basilica of Loreto the only fortified church in the world, had architects such as Baccio Pontelli ,, Cristoforo Resse da Imola and Antonio da Sangallo the Younger their own constructing g…

Italy: the most beautiful country in the world.
Top Rated Tourist Attractions in Italy, 1 Colosseum Rome, 2 Venice Canals, 3 Pompeii, 4 Leaning Tower of Pisa, 5 Lake Como, 6 Amalfi Coast, 7 Florence Duomo Santa Maria del Fiore, 8 Cinque Terre. We are in Italy and we know that we have one of the most visited countries in the world under our feet, a unique country, rich in history, culture, natural resources, and a consolidated artisan and gastronomic tradition. Yes an open-air museum, in every corner, in every street, in every small neighborhood hides a piece of history, tradition, and culture. If you can meet the expectations of tourists they will talk about it with relatives, friends, in blogs, share photos and comments on social media, encouraging you to visit the white beaches of Salento, to take a photo in front of the imposing Colosseum, to watch the view from a high altitude refuge in the Dolomites, to be lulled in the lagoon on a gondola in Venice, to taste a plate of freshly baked lasagna in a typical Emilian inn ... But there is more but much more. The Italian Small towns and Borghi villages that tourists should see, large and small, medieval and baroque, perched on high mountains or along coasts. The most beautiful villages along with the boot - worthy of being seen at least once in a lifetime - for the kitchen, the art, the landscape, the history . From Cornello dei Tasso, in the province of Bergamo, a medieval fairytale village where time seems to stand still in Scanno, in Abruzzo, a rural paradise . Up to Marettimo, in the Egadi, a refuge in all senses . Click here for a map.

Northern Italy. The northern regions of Italy are full of spectacular mountain landscapes, while other areas, especially on the east coast, are flat at the entrance to the Adriatic Sea.

Southern Italy it is the heat of the sun and the color of the landscapes, Italy in its most ancient form, full of feeling and sensual. Down here, the ruins are older, the longest lunches and the wildest and most intense landscapes.
