Analytical text

It is a Romanesque church, probably constructed in the XIII century. The apsis decorated with little windows and the southern side with an arch portal belong to the original structure of the church. The facade was restored in the XIX century, while the bell-tower is very recent. The inside of the church originally had a wide plant. Along the centuries the church was radically restored; it was lengthened and some columns, creating some small chapels, were added to the original structure. The frescos on the apsis are very interesting. The ones on the curve wall are the most ancient. They represent The Holy Mother in frontal position and the Holy mother and her Baby with people praying by her feet. These frescos belong to the XIII century local tradition. On the apsis basin there is a fresco portraying Christ in throne with the Holy Mother, St. Peter and the symbols of the Evangelists dated XIV century. Down on the right there are fragments of frescos representing St. Peter, St. John and St. Bartholomew dated XV century. They are probably the fragments of a procession of the 12 apostles. On the triumphal arch there was a big fresco representing the Last Judgement with the Cross standing in the centre. The only part that remains is the right-side one. It had been restored and hanged again. This fresco might belong to the Bolognese school and might be dated 1360.
