Andrea Brustolon, born in 1662 was an exceptional artist of Italian Baroque wood art. Luisa's family owns a preliminary study in clay of one of the large pieces he did for one of the churches here in Belluno. The city has put together an exhibition of his work and their piece is in the exhibition, so we were invited as "important" guests for the opening ceremony. It was fairly booring, but the exhibtion is great and after the opening the city put on a big party for the whole community. There was free food, wine, and desert that never seemed to run out along with good music from two bands. I was pretty impressed, had a good time, ate too much, and drank too much.
