Out of Palermo

Beauty will save the world

Byzantine artists made this gold and lapis mosaic for the Greek-rite church in the time of the Norman monarchs.
I paid my two eurosat the Martorana Church door, got my audio-visual guide and sat down in a pew to stare at the starry vault I love so much.
The opening logo of the audio-visual guide said, "Beauty will save the world." Maybe they are right. I hope so.
