  • The Chapel is one of the masterpieces of Renaissance painting and the main attraction of Spello (Flower Festival). At 10.30 there was nobody to open it (and get paid the ticket). The upper glass barrier a conspicuous sign prohibiting photograph: but when many small local authorities will follow the spirit of the circular Feldman for over 2 years allows to photograph state museums, doing mostly know the Italy with the diffusion of the images? I remained to be able to appreciate at least a posteriori this gem by Pinturicchio that photograph allungandomi above the glass to resume the environment near dark, breaking with flavour stupid ban.

  • Beautiful church with particular Bell cusp, squat and massive but that an eye catcher and directs it to the beautiful façade that includes a Roman frieze. The Interior is simple and rich baroque altars and mortars has significant and numerous works of art that go through them all is not easy, without a shadow of a doubt the Baglioni Chapel, a wonderful cycle of paintings dated 1500-1501 work of Perugino on Commission of the prior Baglioni that impress the scenes down in dear to the artist, the Nativity and the dispute of Jesus among the doctors in the temple; the ceiling vault and the floor of the chapel in Deruta majolica of 1516. And still other works other frescoes by Perugino to the pillars of the presbytery, the Renaissance pulpit, the font of Roman origin and still others frescoes by Pinturicchio in the Chapel to the left of the presbytery and in the next room. I mean an unexpected trip in the culture, not to be missed.
