Photographer's Note

Here I'm in the Lower Church of the Temple of don Bosco, near Turin: a magic place to concentrate and pray...

details about lower church (from the official site):
"It was inaugurated in 1965 and it holds 700 people. At the back of the altar there is a big picture representing Don Bosco arriving at "i Becchi" with a group of his students. It was painted by Caffaro Rore. Behind the presbytery, on the very spot where Cascina Biglione once stood - the place where John Bosco was born - a distinguished relic of the Saint is kept. The paintings on the side wall are the work of the painter Bogani. They represent scenes fom the lives of Mamma Margherita and Giovannino Bosco. In the side chapels each stained glass window represents saints from the Salesian tradition. On the back wall a life-size photograph of Leonardo da Vinci's famous fresco The Last Supper can be seen."
