Italian Reflections (Cont.): The Platypus Travels Part XXI

Europe has so many beautiful churches and so little use for them.  No one wants to bulldoze a work or art but, then again, not many feel the need to go to church anymore.  So what do you do with all the buildings?  Many urban centers in the United States have this problem too.  I've seen churches turned into art galleries and night clubs -this particular church in Venice has been converted into a museum of stringed instruments.  Note that the central image has been removed and that the lamps of the presence are out.  I'll let you make of it what you will.
