Padova's Scrovegni Chapel in One Minute

Padova's Scrovegni Chapel is slathered with precious and exquisite frescos by Giotto, including several poignant scenes from Holy Week, Jesus' Crucifixion, and the Resurrection. I'm hoping to do an Easter special (as a follow-up to our Christmas special) for public television, so we filmed each of these beautiful scenes in anticipation of that project. In this frantic little video clip, I take one minute to blitz the events of Jesus' last week as presented by Giotto. (Thankfully, when you visit the chapel, you'll get 15 minutes.)
