Icona Passatora

Amatrice medieval town center is famous not only for its wonderful 13th-century square tower, St. Francis Romanesque-style church, and the 14th-century St. Augustine church, but also for being the hometown of Cola dell'Amatrice, one of the most important artists of Central Italy (1480 - 1547). Painter and architect during the Renaissance period, he trained himself in Rome, at the school of Bramante and Raffaello. Among the others, his works include the Holy Family preserved in Amatrice, Campli and Falignano altarpiece, and the façade of the Cathedral in Ascoli.
