Val di Noto

[3]Different materials for different temperatures

A church decorated with infinite materials that make it wonderful and precious.
If we could touch the walls and decorations of the church, we would realise how much the temperature of one material can vary compared to another: the glass windows are very cold in winter, but much warmer in summer when heated by the sun; the blue, plaster decorations are much warmer than the marble columns of the aedicula where the statue of the saint is kept; and the saint, made of wood, is warmer than all those materials.
