1068 IT - Sacri Monti of Piedmont and Lombardy (2003)

Brief Description

"The nine Sacri Monti (Sacred Mountains) of northern Italy are groups of chapels and other architectural features created in the late 16th and 17th centuries and dedicated to different aspects of the Christian faith. In addition to their symbolic spiritual meaning, they are of great beauty by virtue of the skill with which they have been integrated into the surrounding natural landscape of hills, forests and lakes. They also house much important artistic material in the form of wall paintings and statuary."

皮埃蒙特及伦巴第圣山
"位于意大利北部的这9座“圣山”,是一组修建于16世纪晚期至17世纪的小教堂建筑群,以及与之配套的其他宗教建筑物。它 们是专门为人们以不同方式向基督教表示虔诚而建造的。除了具有精神方面的象征意义之外,它们那与周围自然环境(山峦、森林、湖泊)高度和谐、融洽及统一的 精湛建筑技艺也给人以高度美的享受。这里也有许多壁画和雕像等重要艺术作品。"
