  • This small village in the mountains of Abruzzo encloses a large treasure a beautiful and well preserved Church and a chapel with extraordinary frescoes depicting the life of Jesus and the Saints and a calendar. A little treasure of sacred art pre-Giotto of remarkable level, unfortunately the authors are unknown but this increases their astonishment to note how much skill in the dark middle ages

  • Fresco cycle only, should be included in the world heritage to be protected. Only watch out for the visitor, you must call to book the visit which by the way is free. In other countries the rightly would pay their weight in gold. Proper bidding.

  • Bominaco is the only village in the municipality of Caporciano, in the province of L'Aquila. Includes a small medieval village of about a hundred inhabitants. It is located approximately 1000 m a.s.l. It is famous for its Benedictine churches, Santa Maria Assunta and San Pellegrino, which in the middle ages, were part of a single monastery. Before it was called Momenaco; It was owned by the religious order of the Benedictines in the 10th century and was also a stopping point for those who had as goal the Adriatic coast and followed the path of tratturo that passes in the area. It is about 30 km from L'Aquila the Abbey Church of Santa Maria Assunta is an example of Romanesque architecture of Abruzzo, with important frescoes inside. But even more remarkable is the stone decoration, discoverable in the capitals of sturdy columns, and especially in the liturgical furnishings: apart from a pulpit of 1180 quadrilateral based on four columns featuring lavish capitals-certainly the best work-include the Paschal candle, the Chair of the Abbey and the ciborium (the latter the result of a reconstruction made restorations after World War II). The Oratory of San Pellegrino, single-nave building, perhaps founded by Charlemagne in Abruzzo, rebuilt by Abbot Teodino in 1263; view inside Abruzzo school frescoes of the thirteenth century, one of the most extensive and intact pictorial complexes of that era, they represent episodes of sacred history: the childhood of Christ, the passion, the last judgement and scenes from the life of san Pellegrino. But the most interesting frescoes are those that show the two opposite walls of the presbytery a monastic schedule: next to an allegorical image of the month view through the main agricultural activity, there is a page with days and liturgical memories, with particular reference to the saints of the Benedictine order. To separate the area destined to pilgrims from that of the monks – there are two hurdles of marble carved with the image of a dragon and a Griffin and the inscription reminding Teodino and date 1263. The convent of the ancient monastic community remain very little evidence.
