Chiesa Parrocchiale di Búdino


[image ALT: zzz. It is the façade of the parish church of Budino, Umbria (central Italy).]

Of the parish church of Budino, I've got nothing more for you than these three somewhat color-deteriorated photos, taken in 1998. I don't even know the name of the church, nor have I been inside. Now in my defense, Budino is a very small place, with maybe a hundred inhabitants all told; and because of the then recent Umbrian earthquake (Sept. 26, 1997) the church was, as you will see, very closed: Mass was being said in the prefabricated shed of which you see a sliver in the left foreground of the photo above.

The church must date, though, to the 16c or maybe the 17c; it is somewhat similar in general plan and appearance to the Santuario della Madonna at La Bruna near Spoleto.

A façade that could be any period after the 16c; here, very likely later rather than earlier: my guess is 19c or even early 20c.
