  • The Chapel is located in the Collegiate Church of Santa Maria Maggiore and is famous for the presence of a cycle of frescoes by Pinturicchio dating from about 1500 and 1501.

  • The Chapel is located in the main church in Spello (Santa Maria Maggiore), on the left side of the nave. It is immediately recognizable by the colorful frescoes covering the entire Chapel, Pinturicchio and considered among the best ever made by the artist. Even the floor is notable for the presence of precious tiles from Deruta. Too bad you can't take pictures (one of the many places where what in my opinion is a ban absurd: would prohibit the use of flash that could damage the frescoes, but what's wrong with shooting without flash?). The entrance is free of charge; It must be said that even without entering the chapel you can admire fine already from the outside but it only cost 2 euros and the proceeds will finance the restoration of the Church, damaged by the earthquake and therefore not open to the public for most of today.

  • This is the second time we visit the lovely town of Spello and decided to revise the Baglioni Chapel. The emotion that we experienced the first time has remained unchanged. Inside the Collegiata di s. Maria Chapel is very important for a cycle of frescoes by Pinturicchio. This is one of the most important pictorial representations of the artist who had as principal Troilo Baglioni exponent of the rich and famous family of Perugia. The dating of the work is between 1500 and 1501. The themes represented are the stories of Mary and the childhood of Jesus. On the left wall the Annunciation takes place in a majestic Renaissance loggia. You see Maria intent in the reading is taken by surprise by announcing Angel. In the background a detailed representation of the landscape. In the right part of the image note the self-portrait of the artist with a dedication: Bernardinus Pictoricus Perusinus. The adoration of the shepherds with the magi in the background. On the right wall the dispute between Jesus and the temple. Here we find depicted the same Troilus alongside a man who holds in his hands a bag of coins, the compensation provided for the payment of the work. Not to be missed.
