Madonna di San Biagio, Montepulciano

The effect of the interior of this church is overwhelming, not in terms of the definition of the space but because of the impact of what seems to be brute mass. The accent is not on the walls but on the articulation of the corners which are treated almost as if they were the inner walls of the ground stories of the towers.
