We were in Urbino for the day, and had completed our tour of the Ducal Palace. We went to the Oratorio on the way out of town, and delighted in the narrow stone staircase of a street required to get there. The Oratorio is old, with a wonderful history, and the frescoes are amazing. Many thanks for having an English... 更多
The frescoes by the Salimbeni brothers of the Crucifixion and the life of John the Baptist have great charm and character. Notwithstanding the solemnity of the religious episodes and themes portrayed, they convey a wonderful sense of early fifteenth century life through their detailed observations of ordinary people.

I heard of this through the owner of the B&B where I stayed. What luck! It's an amazing place for anyone who enjoys early frescoes, created here by two brothers, Lorenzo and Jacopo Saltimbeni between 1415-18. The works are in amazing condition, bright and full of interesting details. The small chapel in which they cover practically the entire interior is... 更多
