  • Visited at an affordable price, €2.50 provides the explanation of the frescoes which are interesting to see

  • in the Center, reachable by a short walk, the oratorio has a deceptive twentieth-century façade. the admission price is symbolic and the monument is a must: the urbinati compare him with an understandable overstatement parochial, to Scrovegni di giotto. the fresco of crucifixion behind the altar reminds padovano masterpiece indeed, for the collection of photos of people, to insert spurious elements as the fight between two children, to the clear division between damnation and salvation, for some weeping subjects. no less interesting the Johannine cycle presenting some figures of great definition, probably belonging to the order that you wanted to pay homage to, and some poses an impressive naturalness. a small museum completes the visit.

  • Beautiful old church. The oratory is best known for its late Gothic style fresco cycle (1416) by the brothers Lorenzo and Jacopo Salimbeni. Brothers Lorenzo Salimbeni (1374-c1418) and Jacopo Salimbeni (c.1370/80 - after 1426) were Italian medieval painters representative of International Gothic style.
  • Exquisite fresco cycle.
  • Beautiful room with a series of frescoes by the Salimbeni brothers in Gothic style which anticipate the Renaissance Ducal Palace petiodo. Very attractive and very especially the crucifixion of Christ, one of the few to mpndo where there are numerous characters in addition to the soliri pictured, Longinus, soldiers, children, women, notables, animals, Angels and demons with various stories depicted. A masterpiece

  • In Urbino, this oratory is a refined example of International Gothic, which anticipates the great Renaissance art of the Doge's Palace. An enjoyment, for the eyes but also for the mind.
