Trompe-l’oeil painting in Tremona (Switzerland)

This summer we visited the small village of Tremona situated in canton Ticino (district of Mendrisio in Switzerland) at the base of the church of St. Agata and surrounded by terraced hillsides.
Its origins are very old. Recently excavations uncovered well preserved remains of settlements from the Neolithic.

Some of the houses and doors of the village are decorated with exquisite paintings of Tazio Marti.

In the photo above you can see a trompe-l’oeil painting on the wall of the restaurant “Antica Osteria” situated in the center of the village.

In the gallery several pictures of the village itself.
