Petrucci House - Trevi (PG)

Before the door, on the right you meet the Petrucci House (now Maurizi, and joined to the adjacent building), whose facade overlooking Via Salvatore Zappelli is all adorned with elegant graffiti, among other things with the fable of Diana and Atteone , illustrated by explanatory writings: DEA DYANA and, in the cartouche the cry of Actaeon to his dogs: ACTEON EGO SUM DOMINUM COGNOSCITE VESTRUM (I am Acteon: recognize your master); below three coats of arms, the central one with the Bernardinian monogram and the barely legible date: A. MCCCCCX ?. Actaeon, a Greek mythological hero raised by Chiron and who became a very talented hunter, was changed by Diana into a deer: according to a legend, for having boasted of overcoming the goddess in archery, according to another - and it is the one depicted here - for having admired the goddess' nudity in the bathroom for too long. He perished torn to pieces by his own dogs who did not recognize him in the appearance of a deer .: "Acteon ego sum: dominum cognoscite vestrum" (I am Acteon: recognize your master).
