Outlying Churches

[image ALT: A wide two‑story building of rustic stone, with two doors (one of which is raised off the ground and not visibly accessible), two small rectangular windows, and a small rectangular niche above one of these. Despite that, its aspect is essentially windowless; it rises to a peak in the center, where it is surmounted by a small open belfry arch of the style called in Italy a 'campanile a vela', but without its bell. It is the church of S. Michele near Acquasparta, Umbria (central Italy).]

[image ALT: An ornately painted wooden balcony, and above it, a small organ case: only 23 large pipes are visible, symmetrically disposed and ranging from about one to two meters in length; a similar number of much smaller pipes, a few centimeters tall, are clustered at the base of them. It is the organ loft in the church of SS. Filippo e Giacomo at Portaria, Umbria (central Italy).]
