The Secrets of Giotto
Prof. Giuliano Pisani

Professor Pisani has worked for many years on the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua, adorned with famous frescoes by Giotto, and authored  the book titled I volti segreti di Giotto (The Secret Sides of Giotto) which was published in 2008. Professor Pisani is seeking new threads in this world-famous work of art, using an almost detective-like investigation method which has led to new, surprising observations which differ from classical, stereotypical interpretations. In his eye, the forms and colours create new, unexpected patterns, revealing the figures which have, so far, gone unnoticed. The presumed symbols of the Evangelists have turned out to be mythological animals and figures.
