Hunter’s moon

luna_c_lagoThis is a picture of the church in the old town with the full moon behind it, taken last night! The Church of Santa Maria Maddalena was built in the early 19th century on the ruins of a medieval church. It contains frescoes by Pier Mariano Vittori (1817-1888) with the collaboration of Alceste Ricci, as well as an alterpiece depicting the ‘Madonna and Child, St. Anthony Abbot and Saint Mary Magdalene’ produced in 1500 by Eusebio da San Giorgio (1470-1550), a pupil of Perugino (1450-1520). This painting was at the centre of a heated debate some years ago as some attributed it to Raphael (1483-1520)!
