Art-For-Art’s-Sake Theatre: Monreale Cathedral

Time once again for our usual midday Wednesday feature.

Imagine a drone flying into one of the great cathedrals of Europe. On the other hand, you don't have to. Kathy Schiffer reported recently on the commissioning by the Archdiocese of Monreale (Sicily) for a videographer to fly a videocam-bearing drone through the cathedral, obtaining an impressive view of its Byzantine mosaics created during the late Middle Ages.
