George’s Postcard Note: Church with Baroque Facade, Lucca – Around the corner from larger piazzas and churches sits this small church. Its personality is as quiet and pensive as its elegant interior. What caught my attention were how the buildings were jammed next to its cool white marble, and also the warm stucco garden walls. What was this compound? The result of living densely within tight city walls? An addition to the church for housing priests? Whatever the answer it seemed to me in its jumble of forms and reasons to be appropriate and artful.
