Photographer's Note

Yesterday I finished all colors, today I must post in B&W
This jewel of the Romanesque style dates back to the XI or XII century and is mentioned in all good history of art publications. Built over a IX century construction it has a façade made up of a five columned pronaos. The rib supported vault is open at the sides and metopes depicting the four Evangelists and some mosaic work by the Cosmati brothers are to be seen above the five Roman arches (archi a sesto acuto?). In the uppermost part there are two oculi and a double wheeled rose window in the traditional Umbrian style. This in turn is surmounted by a smaller rose-window surrounded by seven majolicas and an eagle on the top of the roof. The three-naved interior is rich in variously ornated columns and capitals.
