This design is the reproduction of a Fresco present in the Albèri Library in Orvieto, Italy. The studio of Archdeacon Antonio Albèri in Orvieto was inspired by the Piccolomini Library of Siena, both adjacent to their respective Duomos. These two academic havens constitute a unique and singular example of libraries attached to a cathedral. The cycle of frescoes, made between 1501 and 1503, are attributed to the workshop of Luca Signorelli. Albèri’s library housed around 300 volumes in its impressive book collection, unfortunately dispersed over the centuries.
Scarf in 100% Italian organic silk certified GOTS with hand-rolled edges. As this scarf is hand-rolled, the dimensions indicated may vary.
A percentage of each purchase will be donated to the Opera of the Duomo of Orvieto, thus contributing to the preservation of its priceless assets.
