St. Nicholas Church - Schioppo - Scheggino - Umbria
The church of St. Nicholas reveals its Romanesque origins in the lancet in the bell gable with two arches, laterally, and reassembled in the portal in the apse wall when, in the radical restructuring of the sixteenth century, it has also changed the orientation of the church.
The only nave covered internal trusses, contains a valuable sixteenth-century pictorial decoration and the remains of the previous decoration of the fifteenth century.
On the back wall depicts a Crucifixion, alongside a Trinity, dated 1507.
On the left wall a Madonna Enthroned with Child reveals yet gothic features.
It follows a theory of saints: St. Peter, St. Paul and seven other saints or holy.
The presbytery covered cruise with double wedges still is completely painted with grotesques and the four Evangelists in medallions (late sixteenth century), on the left wall, two paintings of saints very damaged, relevant to the fifteenth-century decoration. The walls are decorated with canopies. On the altar wall, on the left, St. Anthony Abbot, St. Nicholas in the niche, Madonna and Child with Angels and Saint John, Saint Lucia on the right, missing the head.
Altar altarpiece painted wood with a central figure of Saint Nicholas of Bari in the late eighteenth century.
On the right wall, the upper register, St. Anthony of Padua, recognizable by the lily, is curiously portrait with fire in his hand, the usual attribute of Sant'Antonio Abate.
Following a devotional fresco, dated 1541, that the developer kneeling dedicating to San Vito for the grace received healing by the bite of a snake.
Underneath a Saint of the fifteenth century bishop.

Beautiful interior scene of this altar piece. We can see the traces of time in this very old piece.
The fresh flowers give a nice colour-contrast with the painting.

molto belli questi affreschi e bella la tua foto, le immagini sono ben dettagliate e non credo ci sia stata molta luce.

An excellent photo of the interior of this church. The soft, pastel colours are so pleasant, especially in this fine light. The fresco is really beautiful.

Excellent light indoor's the corner in the church, colors are bright and vivid, and the painting depicted a religious theme is clearly shown.
A picture superbly made up.

The subject is well framed. The point of view is showing the details of the altar and of the painting on the wall. The light has a good effect on the colours. Have a nice day.

Superb wall murals, excellently captured.
The colours are still quite vivid.
Thanks to the presence of the altar we can better estimate the dimensions.
Best regards, Paul

Mammamia, che colori e luce. Immagino il muro cinquecento anni fa. Eccellente la luce, definizione e nitidezza. Un bellissimo soggetto, molto intrigante.
Un abbraccio e buon weekend

Even with the fissures the paintings still look very attractive. Good sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. The flowers add a splash of color. Tfs!

Very colorful artwork is shown here. I am sorry to see that they were not able to preserve the artwork completely, all the more reason to take lots of photos so that we can preserve whatever remains for posterity.
