EDITORS COMMENTS
This 15th-century fresco captures the poignant last conversation between two revered saints, St. Benedict and St. Scholastica. Painted by the Umbrian School, this masterpiece is housed in the Monastero di San Benedetto (Santuario Sacro Spero) in Subiaco, Rome. The scene depicts a momentous meeting that took place on June 2nd, 547 AD – just days before St. Scholastica's passing. As fate would have it, a thunderstorm unexpectedly erupted during their discussion, forcing St. Benedict to remain with his beloved sister throughout the night. In this beautifully detailed artwork, we witness the saints engaged in deep conversation while sharing a meal together. The table is adorned with an aureole of holiness as they partake in bread and red wine from delicate glassware. The painting exudes a sense of tranquility and spirituality as these holy figures engage in prayerful dialogue within the confines of their religious order. It serves as a testament to their unwavering faith and devotion to God. Luisa Ricciarini masterfully brings this historical event to life through her skillful brushwork and attention to detail characteristic of Quattrocento artistry. This piece not only showcases Italian culture but also provides insight into medieval Christian practices and beliefs. As we gaze upon this remarkable fresco, we are transported back in time to witness an intimate exchange between two influential figures whose lives continue to inspire countless individuals today
