Churches of Arrone

[image ALT: A wall painting depicting a naked baby on a small heap of straw on the ground, with to our right, an old man, looking very tired, seated on a chest and leaning on a staff; to our left, a young woman, kneeling, in a long mantle, with behind her three shepherds, also kneeling. In the background, à straggling procession of half a dozen horses and people on foot, winding their way thru an idealized rural landscape; and above, four flying angels singing from sheet music. It is a fresco of the Nativity in the church of S. Maria Assunta, at Arrone in eastern Umbria (central Italy).]

Choir of S. Maria Assunta:
Nativity, by Vincenzo Tamagni and Giovanni da Spoleto, 1516.

[image ALT: A three-ribbed Gothic absidal vault, each of the five spaces thus delimited occupied by a fresco of an old man, seated; except that the space farthest to our right is bare plaster. The frescoes depict the Doctors of the Church, to the right and left hand of God the Father, in the church of S. Giovanni Battista in Arrone, Umbria (central Italy).]
S. Giovanni Battista

[image ALT: A frescoed vault in which the central space depicts a seated man placing a crown on the head of a kneeling woman, the whole against a background of stylized fire. On either side, two registers busy with figures: the lower, of five seated men to our left, and five seated women to our right; the upper, groups of winged angels playing various musical instruments. It is a fresco of the Coronation of the Virgin in the church of S. Maria Assunta in Arrone, Umbria (central Italy).]
S. Maria Assunta

[image ALT: A small two-story rectangular building, probably single-room, with a door and three windows above it, a gently pitched roof and an open single-bell belfry at the back of the type known as a 'campanile a vela'. There is a small square plaque over the door, but it is blank. To the right, a staircase leads down to a soccer field. It is an unidentified chapel in Arrone, Umbria (central Italy).]

Outlying Churches

[image ALT: A small wooden door with a cruciform window in its upper part; a large bush obscures much of the scene. It is the entrance door of the church of the Sacro Cuore di Gesù in Arrone, Umbria (central Italy).]

[image ALT: The tiled roof and small open belfry, of the type known as a 'campanile a vela', of the church of S. Nicola in Arrone, Umbria (central Italy).]
S. Nicola

[image ALT: An imposing stone building, two tall stories in height, with a disproportionately small open belfry to our left, of the type known as a 'campanile a vela'. The mass of stone is relieved only by its round-arched entrance door and a small circular window above it. It is a view of the church of S. Valentino in Arrone, Umbria (central Italy).]
