Inside it is my favorite painting and depiction of the ubiquitous theme of the Last Judgment. It was painted by Luca Signorelli. The paintings were graphic, gory, and gruesome. The depiction of the agony on faces, the detail on the nudes, the colors, violence, fear, and movement - it was brilliant. The colors are very vivid and bright it is difficult to imagine these frescoes are five hundred years old. The best part about it was we practically had the church to ourselves!
I loved Orvieto even though we were just there to experience a snippet of it. It seems like there is still a thriving local community there not influenced too much by tourism. Orvieto is pretty special because it is my first Italian countryside town up on the hills of Umbria, and spare for Bologna, I would not see another significant Italian church, or town, for that matter, that is this empty.
