A weekend spent visiting the various sites of the Piero della Francesca exhibition in the Province of Arezzo... the spring countryside looking so much like the landscapes painted by Piero, certainly in his Legend of the True Cross series in the San Francesco church in Arezzo. These frescoes realy do represent some of the most beautiful art and images I have ever seen. Each one is wonderful in its own way and there are twelve of them. When you see guides talking about some of his more simple individual paintings for half an hour you wonder just how much can be said about all twelve of these in total.
The weather is hot, as hot as it ever was in July or August when we used to come up here, the landscape is covered in the bright green of new leaves and the food is wonderful.
