What is a fresco

The fresco is a wall painting that is made exclusively on damp plaster. This type of art has been used abundantly in antiquity in ancient Greece, and subsequently captured in Rome. Many of these paintings can be found in China. At the beginning of the Middle Ages, there was little understanding of this type of art, and mostly mosaics were used for decoration. But the frescoes did not fall into oblivion. In large, they began to embrace the coming of the fourteenth century.
