Een bezoek aan Monte Oliveto Maggiore

  • Een bezoek aan Monte Oliveto Maggiore

    Deze prachtige, werkende abdij is de ideale rustplaats op de magische Crete Senesi-route (zie hierboven). Monte Oliveto, opgericht in 1319, is één van de meest mystieke plekken in Toscane, half verscholen in de bossen. De Olivetaanse monniken leven hier naar de Benedictijnse regels en volgen nog steeds het voorschrift van Sint Benedictus dat luidt dat “een echte monnik iemand is die leeft van zijn eigen arbeid”, en dus produceren zij hun eigen likeuren, wijn en olie. Het belangrijkste klooster is bedekt met memorabele fresco’s over het leven van Sint Benedictus, geïnitieerd door Luca Signorelli in 1495 en later aangevuld door Sodoma vanaf 1505. Sodoma's fresco’s zijn uitbundig en onbevangen, speels gefocust op details zoals een ondeugende glimlach of een parmantig achterwerk van een soldaat.
