Church of Santa Maria in Platea
Built towards the end of the fourteenth century on the ruins of an older building, Santa Maria in Platea is located in the town's main square, Piazza Farnese. Even after its construction in 1395 was elected to Collegiate, which is home to a college of canons. The church took on even greater importance in 1764 when Campli is consecrated to the Immaculate Conception and the Virgin Mary was proclaimed Queen and Patroness of the town and its territory following an outbreak of typhus.
In the eighteenth century it underwent a major restructuring that radically transformed the look. The central part of the facade of the neoclassical style, is precisely the result of this operation, which took place in 1793 to be precise. The niche, which is located above the portal is decorated with a sculpture of the Madonna and Child, by probable Gagliardelli.

It is a beautiful Church Interior, with shafts of light from the vents and windows, brightening up the walls and the floor. The ceiling with its magnificent paintings have been very well captured.
Lots of detail all around with sharp and clear images of the walls on either side.
Thanks for sharing, Silvio.

mi piace tantissimo questa foto che ci porta direttamente nel interiore di questa splendida antica chiesa. Non solo la tua composizione simmetrica e elegante e' piacevole ma inoltre rende la nostra esperienza di questo posto vivacissima. Siamo circondati da interessantissimi dettagli, fine tessiture, prospettive attraenti, colori morbidi ed una luce bellissima. L' atmosfera e' tranquila e gradevole e noi prendiamo tutto il tempo che vogliamo per esplorare ed apprezzare la chiesa ed il tuo lavoro. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona serata,

bella prospettiva ed efficace controllo della luce, i due finestroni sono un bell'ostacolo che hai superato brillantemente .
Bella anche la chiesa, molto particolare il soffitto, non ne avevo mai visti fatti così.

This church has a very pleasant light, thanks to the well placed windows and the mainly white walls, and you have handled this fine light very well. This is just one out of the thousands of attractive old churches of the Italian cultural and religious heritage. You have such a treasure in your country.

A very lovely interior picture, the ceiling is real extraordinarily nice.
Also a very nice choice of your angle this cares for depth and perspective.
Excellent composition, lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

L'endroit est bien beau, mais je constate que la lumière forte à contre jour atténue fortement la qualité des détails ainsi que leur netteté. L'image est par contre profonde et intéressante.

illusion architecture you captured.

This is awesome, you have managed to balance the light across the image so pleasantly something that can be hard to do in a church. Excellent hugh, love the pov & symmetry and mass of details clinched by soothing soft colors. Fab shot, Congrats.
