Madonna del Piano (Perugia province)

A town of western Umbria — a frazione of Montecastello di Vibio — 42°50.5N, 12°22E, altitude: 182 m

[image ALT: A long low single-story concrete building with three pairs of tall slit windows, a concrete porch with a sloping roof, and a flat rectangular belfry about twice as tall. It is the modern church of Madonna del Piano, Umbria (central Italy).]

The church of the Madonna del Piano: concrete, late 20c.

Madonna del Piano (loosely, "the Madonna in the plain") is a frazione — in this case a scattered group of houses — of the comune of Montecastello di Vibio perched nearly 250 meters above it and about 4 km W. Because of its location in the plain, it has more in common with Fratta Todina, which is also the nearest town, if not by much: including the railroad station, just 2 km away.

The gentle reader mustn't get the idea I know the town well. I crossed it on foot late one morning; some very slight additional feel for the place may be got from the brief entry in my diary, Mar. 13, 2004.
