Cappella del Collegio dei Boemi – Villa Fabri – Trevi (PG)
The Bohemian College has left a richly painted chapel at Villa Fabri by B. Cila and the Benedictine abbot Pantaleo Mayor: in the apse are depicted St. Ludmilla, St. Agnes of Bohemia, St. Adalbert Bishop of Prague, in the center of St. Wenceslas, martyr, patron of the Czech Republic and Bohemia, St. Procopius and Saints Cyril and Methodius; on his knees, Charles IV of Luxembourg, king of Bohemia and emperor of the Holy Roman Empire and the archbishop of Prague his contemporary Jan Očko z Vlašimi; in the side chapels are depicted stories of the life of St. Francis and of the life of the Madonna. The decoration of the Bohemian Chapel constitutes in Italy, after the Crypt of Montecassino, the second most important work of the school of Beuron. The Benedictine artistic school of Beuron, a Swedish artistic movement developed in the mid-nineteenth century thanks to Peter Lenz, a Benedictine monk with the name of Dom Desiderio, and inspired by Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Byzantine painting models, will bridge the art nouveau and modernity. Giovanni Battista Montini (Paul VI) in an essay on the periodical "Studium" of January 1929, defined it as "one of the best defined currents of contemporary sacred art. It is pure religious art ".
