Did You Know? (Guido Nincheri)

When asked, in 1928, to decorate the Saint Léon de Westmount Church, Guido Nincheri put all his talent into it. Thus, he drew preliminary sketches and detailed plans for all the ornaments (chandeliers, sculptures, crosses), created the many stained-glass windows, and made frescoes according to a technique dating back to the Renaissance. Today, thanks to Guido Nincheri's works, the Saint Léon de Westmount Church is classified a National Historic Monument by the Ministry of Canadian Heritage.
