Cristo Crocifisso che inizia l'ascensione al Paradiso – Dipinto di Dino Carbetta
"Crucified Christ who begins the ascension to Paradise - Painting by Dino Carbetta" ...
A painting of this very high view peering toward the Altar of the Crucifixion and Titian’s great Altarpiece of the Assumption of Mary. As I arched my back and looked straight above, Jesus appeared to lift skyward. The Basilica di Frari is one of my favorite churches in all of Italy. Outwardly nondescript, walking through the doorway, one is instantly overwhelmed by its ancient beauty and grandeur. My imagination is bursting with a fascinating impression of great history, aesthetic brilliance, and the “Holy” who have embarked upon this monumental “Basilica masterpiece!” Although I managed a few images, photography was restricted on my first visit. However, on our Pilgrimage of 2019, a small entrance fee allowed for unlimited actuations. “Frari,” is a large Gothic church of the early 15th century now filled with elaborate paintings and tombs. The interior is light and spacious, and claims are often made for the Frari being almost a museum of Venetian Renaissance art. The Assumption of the Virgin is a brilliant large altarpiece painting by the Italian Renaissance artist Titian. It is the largest altarpiece in the city and is necessitated by a very large church. The wood crucifix from 1468, hangs over the entrance of the choir. Traditionally, a Calvary was hanging above the choir and beside the Crucifix, there are the sculptures of the Madonna and Saint John the Evangelist. It is very likely that – thanks to His beauty and relevance – this crucifix was taken as a pattern for many others in Venezia and the Veneto region. Just like most former tourists of Italy, one yearns for the delectable anamnesis of Gelato. I agree with that memorable thought, but I also hunger and languish for Venice and all its hidden spirituality that most simply overlook.
