Photographer's Note

Church of San Silvestro - Cozze di Campello (PG)
The church, now lost in the middle of the woods and semi-ruined, is built in flint and is very old, certainly prior to the 14th century, it was radically restored in the 15th century with a variation of the internal orientation and closure of the ancient access. it opened on the gabled façade, and with the opening of a new entrance.
Probably in the same period the floor was raised considerably, partially covering the pre-existing frescoes executed, therefore, in the period in which the original construction was intact.
The original facade is surmounted by a small bell gable from the 16th century.
The barrel-covered interior was probably completely frescoed, now it is almost entirely plastered, there are still works of good hand, probably dating back to the early fifteenth century, to the right of the current entrance Santa Lucia and Madonna with Child, on the back wall, formerly the ancient façade San Bernardino da Siena and San Fortunato, on the wall opposite the current entrance Madonna della Misericordia and Madonna del Latte, to the left of the altar a beautiful Madonna and Child, much deteriorated.
Above the altar was a seventeenth-century canvas depicting San Silvestro, now it has been removed and traces of unreadable frescoes can be seen.
The church deserves a better fate, if no action is taken it is destined to collapse soon.
