Photographer's Note

Church of San Martino - Manciano di Trevi (PG)
The small Church of San Martino rises at an altitude of 585 meters near the town, on the border between the olive groves and the woods.
The church was traditionally open on the occasion of the solemnity dedicated to the titular saint, when the Holy Mass was also officiated there and a simple popular festival was held where it was possible to taste the excellent chestnuts produced in Manciano; now it is unusable as a result of the 1997 earthquake.
It can be seen in the amenity of the high hilly landscape that surrounds it for the small bell gable.
The step of the entrance door, of semicircular shape, is clearly obtained from a millstone (SEE WS).
At this altitude there have never been mills, but two hundred meters behind the church there is the abandoned quarry that still shows two millstones just sketched.
It is similar to many others in the area with its structure, with the single arched bell tower, the result of interventions subsequent to the construction of the main structure, placed in line with the facade and the archivolted portal.
The asymmetrical fa蓷de denotes a subsequent enlargement to the south.
The interior, with a single hall, is characterized by a large apse that occupies almost the entire back wall.
Until the 1950s, a magnificent panel painted in tempera from the mid-13th century adorned this remote church.
Fortunately it was blocked as it was about to leave the town, now it makes a fine show, perfectly restored, at the diocesan museum of Spoleto.
There is depicted the Madonna with Child and in the four corners scenes of the Passion of Christ and the life of San Martino (SEE WS).
It is the work of the Master of San Felice di Giano, active in the second half of the 13th century in central-southern Umbria.
