A visit to a convent...

I visited, obviously with Cioporeporter, the yellow one, a particular art exhibition...
In the Convent of Saint Dominic, Naples, near the San Severo Chapel,
there' s, for some months, the "Impossible Art Exhibition".
It consists of digital reproductions of famous paintings of
Leonardo da Vinci, Raffaello and Caravaggio.
All the digital reproductions have the dimensions of the
original paintings. It' s a great thing for visitors to see only
in a place so many masterpieces of so famous Artists since,
in reality, the original paintings are scattered all around the world...

And the same Convent is a beautiful thing to see...believe me...

For your curiosity some pics of the Convent...
