Photographer's Note

Small ship

The fresco is located inside the ancient church of Santa Maria in Campis in Foligno, in the first chapel of the left aisle, entitled to Pietro di Cola delle Casse, named after the client who financed it in the mid-1400s. the bottom is frescoed with Christ busy calming the stormy waters of the Sea of Galilee. The fresco, a jewel in the panorama of medieval Italian painting, is attributed to the Mezzastris school.
The theme of the "little ship" was an allegory of the Church capable of maintaining its stability even in the face of difficulties.
