During my last holiday in Italy I visited several museums. In two of them, the Palazzo Piti, Palatine Gallery, in Florence and the Doge Palace in Venice I found these very fine woodcuts.
Palazzo Pitti – Monte Athos 1580 and 17th century
Doge Palace Venice
Wood triptych: Dormitio Virginis – 18th century
On a wall in the Doge palace I saw a large map of Europe and with Chalkidiki/Athos.
The names of a few cities from the pre-christian/classical period can be seen.
This map is from Fra Mauro 1450 seen in the Correr museum Venice (I turned the map on purpose 180 degrees).
