glitter on the incredible facade of the Duomo. The approach to Orvieto is awesome as it rises up on an enormous tufa cliff above the valley below and the grand Duomo can be seen for many miles.
Each time I quietly sit in this chapel, I think of our own glass artisans who contributed to the beauty of this incredible Duomo and the link that Piegaro has to Corpus Domini, the Infiorata festival that celebrates the Miracle of Bolsena. Each year the Corporal is taken from the altar and paraded with tapestries that depict the miracle around the flower-strewn streets of Orvieto.
Even the interior of the Duomo has intricate flower tapestries that have taken hours to create.
Someday I will tear myself away from Piegaro's own sweet Infiorata of Corpus Domini to attend the one in Orvieto, a much grander but no less magical one!
