the website is suitable to be used with the students
The website one can be used for virtual visits in the chapel, in order to make the students understand the positioning of the scenes painted like part of a narration that instead in the books, frequently, comes isolatedly analyzed.
- The final result is good because, beyond rendering the public partecipe to the restoration and informing of the costs and the job step, it does not neglect, to introduce, with a simple language, the giottesca poetica

Message: The Caravaggio related link above should have been placed under some of the web-sources related to his art. Let me add about Giotto's work in the Cappella that it was quite interesting to see there the painting of the handling of the Cappella to the saint, which is an approach used quite often in BG mediaeval arts, where the donor/builder was depicted handling a small model of the chapel/church/monastery to the patron saint.

Message: Quite nice web-site on the Cappella. Provides info both on the artist, the place where he worked and his masterpiece. It will definitely be useful for Bulgarian teachers and students. I would like to share an interesting article on Caravagio from a Bulgarian online source - Can be used in addition to Caravagio's section in the Bulgarian translation of the Italian fine arts course.
