Villa of Camposalese - Spoleto (PG)
Location in the middle of a slight depression, near the Marroggia, formed by a series of farmhouses from the seventeenth-century appearance, characterized by dovecots and fence walls placed along the road.
The place has returned Roman materials, reflecting the antiquity of the settlement, located not far from the old route of the Via Flaminia.
Villa essentially agricultural does not have its own history, it is centrally located in the triangle formed by the castles of Azzano, Protte and San Giacomo, today it is a town in the hamlet of Azzano.
Probably in Camposalese and its surroundings there is the highest concentration of dovecot towers in Italy.
In the village of Camposalese, placed at the confluence of several country roads, you can admire two valuable shrines. The first is an elegant eighteenth-century shrine with a tympanum front, the original sacred image has been lost. It is now replaced by a Santissima Icone, oil on panel, by Francesca Ricciardi Morichelli, from the 20th century. The second one, also of the eighteenth century, has a mixtilinear outline and mirroring below the niche. It is a noteworthy example of a shrine erected by the landowners of the area. The Madonna and Child is depicted among the saints Carlo Borromeo and Antonio da Padova, typical iconographies of the Counter-Reformed Church.
