In the comment boxes of Peter Nixon's post on the feast of St. Ignatius of Loyola, Robert Imbelli mentioned the marvelous fresco La Madonna della Strada, which was recently--and rather dramatically--restored. Thanks to the cybersleuthing of dotCom reader Alan Andolsen, you can have a look at the fresco for yourself.
