The Golden Age of the Fresco

Although the art of the fresco is usually practiced in other regions of the world, according to the period, we associate it more frequently with Italian artists.

The fresco enjoyed its golden age in the Italy of the Renaissance, from Giotto (master of the Pre-Renaissance) to Michelangelo and Raphael.
