RICORDI. LA CHIESA DI SAN SALVATORE A CAMPI E IL SUO ALLESTIMENTO MEDIEVALE

 

 

Alessandro Delpriori

 

ABSTRACT

The church of San Salvatore in Campi collapsed on the evening of the 26thOctober 2016, due to the violent earthquakes which struck Umbria and Marche. The interior of San Salvatore was an extraordinary document for the study of original medieval church interiors, and an authentic antology of painting in Valnerina from the fourteenth up to the sixteenth century. The totality of frescoes on the church walls showed the evolution of local painting from the workshop of the Master of Cesi up to Nicola di Ulisse da Siena and to the painters of the Sparapane family of Norcia. Let’s hope that works of restoration and modern technologies will somewhat recover this rich context which today appears completely lost.
