The high Volutes of the nave arches invite one to look at the ceiling, where the highlights of the Virgin Mary’s earthly life are painted. It is a path of pictorial catechesis that brings the visitor to meet the mystery of the Assumption of Mary. An invitation to look up, because higher-up is the destiny of Man close to God. The themes represented in the frescoes on the ceiling are partially inspired by the Sacred Scripture and partially by the apocryphal tradition.
