The Gris Biblia Pauperum project was born out of a desire to highlight the unique and little-known historical-artistic heritage of the church of Sant’Andrea in Gris, in the Municipality of Bicinicco.

The church of Sant’Andrea is in fact the only one in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region to have a fully-preserved cycle of medieval Biblia Pauperum frescoes: a bible for the poor, hence the illiterate.

Inside the church, the lively paintings immerse us in a sophisticated multi-sensory media device: an ‘immersive environment’ from 500 years ago.

The Gris Biblia Pauperum project highlights the church of Sant’Andrea through the creation of a website, which features a virtual tour, a short film “Gris Biblia Pauperum” by Mauro Tonini and an exhibition which can be seen in the square in front of the church.

Gris Biblia Pauperum is a project promoted by the Municipality of Bicinicco, realised with the organizational support and artistic direction of Incipit Film and Mauro Tonini and funding from the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region.
