Sulle falde del Coscerno, a mt. 1152 di altitudine, su una antica strada, che portava da Sant'Anatolia a Monteleone di Spoleto. Certamente la comunitÓ vi si stabilý quando non sembr˛ pi¨ molto sicura la vita sul fondo della valle, dopo l'invasione dei saraceni dell'890.Lass¨ visse una vita tranquilla, semi indipendente dal comune di Spoleto e con i propri Statuti.

Nel 1241 era tra i castelli, che pagavano il fodrum a Federico II. ma torn˛ ben presto a Spoleto, cui rest˛ sostanzialmente fedele. Per il suo isolamento fu facile ai ghibellini banditi, dopo il 1324, stabilirsi nel castello. Nel 1361 e nel 1490 figura tra i castelli del distretto spoletino. Le truppe napoletane di Re Roberto, sconfinate dal regno di Napoli, durante le calate di Enrico VII e Ludovico il Bavaro, se ne impadronirono; lo lasciarono solo nel 1340, dopo che Spoleto, mediante un ambasciatore, garantý a Roberto un aiuto di 500 cavalieri e 1.000 ducati d'oro. Sulla porta del castello Ŕ lo stemma di Spoleto. Nel 1391 fu devastato da Giovanni di Cola da Monteleone. Nel 1639 Urbano VIII░ fece costruire la strada Scheggino - Gavelli - Monteleone. Nel 1798 e per molti anni fu asilo e preda e Insorgenti e dei banditi a quelli succeduti. Con la Restaurazione fu piccolo comune con sindaco nell'ambito del gonfaloniere di Spoleto. Fu soppresso nel 1875 e aggregato a quello di Sant'Anatolia. Nel 1712 il villaggio contava 136 abitanti.

La chiesa Ŕ dedicata a San Michele Arcangelo. Tetto a capriata. La parete sinistra Ŕ divisa in quattro nicchioni con affreschi notevoli. Nel primo Lo Spagna o il discepolo Giovanni Brunotti dipinsero: Madonna con Bambino e Angeli, San Francesco e Sant'Antonio da Padova, San Girolamo (1524). Nel Secondo: la PietÓ, il Calvario, gli strumenti della Passione; San Pietro, l'Ancella, Pilato, Giuda, il gallo ecc.; cinque Santi: Agostino, Leonardo, Sant'Antonio Abate, San Sebastiano e Bernardino; staccato un San Sebastiano de Lo Spagna. Queste pitture sono di maestri locali ( 1492 ). Nel terzo nicchione si vede: l'Eterno sulle nubi e la luce, con Angeli adoranti; nel tamburo la Vergine e molti Santi monaci ed eremiti, di autore ignoto. Nel quarto nicchione: Vergine col Bambino, cherubini e due angeli; San Sebastiano e il Battista, opera de Lo Spagna e del discepolo Brunotti. L'abside e de Lo Spagna fatta un poĺ in fretta per le molte commissioni che allora aveva: Joan hispano pentore MDXVIII. rappresenta l'apparizione dell'arcangelo Michele sul Monte Gargano: la coronazione della Vergine con apostoli, profeti, angeli, santi e sibille. In alto l'Eterno e l'Annunciazione in tre tondi (di allievi del Lo Spagna); lo Spirito Santo, Sant'Agostino e San Matteo. Nella parete destra resta solo una Madonna col Bambino, San Girolamo, San Sebastiano e altri Santi dei molti votivi de Lo Spagna e di Brunotti (1523). Qui, il grande pittore ha lasciato i suoi capolavori. Veramente questa chiesa Ŕ un tesoro.

On the slopes of Coscerno, mt. 1152 above sea level, on an ancient road that led from Sant'Anatolia in Monteleone di Spoleto. Certainly when the community settled there did not seem much more secure life in the bottom of the valley, after the invasion of the Saracens dell'890. Up there lived a quiet life, semi-independent town of Spoleto, with its Statutes.

In 1241 was one of the castles, who paid fodrum to Frederick II. but soon returned to Spoleto, where he remained essentially true. For its isolation was not easy to Ghibellines banned after 1324, settling in the castle. In 1361 and in 1490 is one of the castles in the district of Spoleto. The Neapolitan troops of King Robert, by the boundless kingdom of Naples, while the conductors of Henry VII and Ludwig of Bavaria, took possession of it, left him alone in 1340, after Spoleto, by an ambassador, Robert guaranteed to help riders of 500 and 1,000 gold ducats. On the door of the castle is the emblem of Spoleto. Was devastated in 1391 by Giovanni di Cola da Monteleone. In 1639 Urban VIII ordered the construction of the road Scheggino - Gavelli - Monteleone. In 1798 and was for many years and asylum and insurgents and bandits prey on those succeeded. With the Restoration was a small town with a mayor in the standard-bearer of Spoleto. It was closed in 1875 and aggregate to Sant'Anatolia. In 1712 the village had 136 inhabitants.

The church is dedicated to St. Michael the Archangel. Roof truss. The left wall is divided into four niches with remarkable frescoes. The first in Spain or the disciple John Brunotti painted: Madonna and Child with Angels, St. Francis and St. Anthony of Padua, St. Jerome (1524). In the Second, the PietÓ, Calvary, the instruments of the Passion, St. Peter, the Handmaid, Pilate, Judas, etc. rooster.; Five saints: Augustine, Leonardo, Anthony Abate, San Sebastian and Bernard, a San detached Sebastiano Lo Spain. These paintings are of local teachers (1492). In the third niche you see: the Lord in the clouds and light, with adoring angels, the Virgin in the drum and many holy monks and hermits, author unknown. In the fourth niche: Virgin and Child with two angels and cherubs, the Baptist and Saint Sebastian, Spain and the work of The disciple Brunotti. The apse and Lo made Spain a bit 'in a hurry for the many committees who was Joan hispano pentore MDXVIII. represents the apparition of the Archangel Michael on Mount Gargano: the crowning of the Virgin and apostles, prophets, angels, saints and sibyls. Above the Eternal and the Annunciation in three rounds (of the students of The Spain), Holy Spirit, St. Augustine and St. Matthew. On the right wall is only one Madonna and Child with Saint Jerome, San Sebastian and other saints of the many votive Lo Brunotti and Spain (1523). Here, the great painter has left his masterpieces. This church is truly a treasure.

Hi Silvio,

A lovely capture of this beautiful village. I think the composition would have been better if the FG was not in the composition. The buildings and the mountains beyond manke a stunning image without the shrubs in the front.

Hi Silvio,

The road is send my eye toward the village which is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the houses, buildings and church of the village. The reflection of the light on the snow is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
