Lucca

We arrived before lunch in the beautiful city of Lucca. Italian pulpits are for mountain climbers. This one is in the Basilica. The glass cabinet behind the altar contains the dried corpse of the servant girl St Zita. There are definitely differences between Roman Catholicism and Anglicanism.

There are too always cats.

But why can we so rarely build public buildings which are beautiful and which we expect to last for hundreds of years.
