SAN MICHELE POZZOVEGGIANI CHURCH

SAN MICHELE POZZOVEGGIANI CHURCH

The ancient oratory of Pozzoveggiani, documented from the twelfth century, stands on an ancient temple site of the Fortune Goddess.
The oratory, expanded during the Carolingian period (X-XI century) by building an apse to the east, it is a rare example of Carolingian architecture in the city.
The present form, a single nave, dates from the seventeenth century, when the side wings were demolished.
The walls of the oratory allow us to follow the successive stages building: Romanesque columns, which reuse drums from the Roman period, and the apse with oriental technique.
Of particular interest are the frescoes depicting the Apostles (IX-X century) and the Christ among the Evangelist and Saints (XII-XIII century). The eighteenth-century altar preserves the table of the '200.
