Church of the Madonna dell’Ulivo - Spoleto (PG)

It is located on a knoll just after the monumental cemetery of Spoleto, along an ancient path that led to Norcia.
The appearance is typical of the late sixteenth-century votive building, with a simple facade, protected by a small sweat, with a portal flanked by two small windows and surmounted by a third, now closed.
The interior, with a barrel vault and a single nave, is completely bare of furnishings.
The first part of the left wall has a decoration in faux marble, presumably made in the nineteenth century, in a niche, there is a fresco depicting Sant’Antonio Abate.
The altar is in stucco, on the back wall, framed in a fake arched architecture there is a very deteriorated Madonna and Child, the current state does not allow to determine the period of execution. The two adjacent false arches were probably intended to house images of saints, probably never executed. Below is a decoration in imitation marble.
The first part of the right wall also has a decoration in faux marble, very similar to the opposite one, in a niche there is a fresco depicting Saint Anthony of Padua.
