Photographer's Note

Church of Sant'Emiliano - Trevi (PG)
It stands at the top of the Trevi hill and with its size and the elegant bell tower it completes and characterizes the profile of the town.
It is named after the first bishop of Trevi, patron saint of the city and the municipality, who suffered martyrdom in the year 304.
The Passio, of which two codices remain, from the 9th and 12th centuries, tells the story of the saint. Of Armenian origin, he was sent to govern the local Church, but, following the edict of Diocletian, he was taken and, after numerous tortures, put to death near a new olive tree that can still be admired (Olivo di S. Emiliano).
The cult of the patron saint has always been very much alive in Trevi. In the Middle Ages and the Renaissance S. Emiliano identified with Trevi itself, so much so that it was called "di S. Emiliano" to indicate a thing or an inhabitant of Trevi. The liturgical feast is celebrated on January 28 and the procession of the Illuminata has always been held on the evening before.
