Inspirational Italy Trip - Part 1 - Frescoes & Ceilings

I just arrived back from a two-week trip to Italy where I attended a soil science conference in Southern Italy and did some sightseeing in Rome. Italy is incredibly beautiful and inspiring, I thought that I would share some of the beautiful things that I saw. The Vatican contains the most breathtaking artwork I have ever seen. The colour choices and combinations are so rich and tasteful.Glowing ochres, scarlet, ultramarine blues, emerald greens, delicate pinks and gold leaf.

Beautiful! Very inspirational. I am sure Versace was inspired by these too :)
