Villa Pianciani
A few kilometers from Spoleto, in the heart of the green Umbria, on top of a hill overlooking, with an unforgettable overlooking the surrounding landscape overlooking Assisi, Montefalco, Spello and nearby Spoleto, Villa Pianciani is an elegant historic residence of the late eighteenth century , work of the famous architect Giuseppe Valadier, and part of a monumental complex that includes several buildings and a large historic park, with interesting old trees.
Surrounded by a spectacular landscape and a farm that produces an excellent organic oil, the entire complex, as a national monument, it is bound by the Fine Arts of the Italian State.
Behind the Villa, in an eccentric position and surrounded by olive trees, there is a lovely neoclassical chapel, where the Valadier provides an anticipation of the dictates of neoclassical thought and its subsequent works. It looks like a classical temple with a columned portico and a triangular tympanum. The interior has a single nave and a hemicycle apse, with two small lateral bodies used as sacristy.
