A cycle of medieval frescoes not seen in centuries is now open to the public.

A cycle of medieval frescoes not seen in centuries is now open to the public. The murals, which depict nonreligious themes such as the seasons, arts, zodiac, constellations, and the Virtues and Vices, were discovered during conservation of the Roman church of Santi Quattro Coronati. Home to cloistered Augustinian nuns since the sixteenth century, access to the complex’s artistic treasures has always been limited. Visits to the newly restored frescoes are available by appointment twice per month.
