The Holy Sepulchre
The chapel of the Holy Sepulchre, takes some architectural characteristics of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem as it was in the XVI century but dated back to the time of crusaders (XII century) with rounded elements, mullions and arches.
The chapel is divided into three rooms: in the first one of the Angel, there is the statue of Saint Elena, (the mother of emperor Costantino that at in early of IV century found the real Cross of Jesus) with Mary Magdalene with the vase of precious oils to be strewn on the body of Christ.
Towards, going down to another room, you enter where is the corpse of Jesus. Here the statuary group represent Jesus with a placid face like he sleep. On the overhanging wall is possible to admire a fresco that represent the Deposition of Jesus.
The chapel of the Holy Sepulchre in the Jerusalem of Tuscany in San Vivaldo, became a place of meditation to rejoin with God, that become man, is died on the cross for our salvation and resurrect for His Glorification.
