Admire the ancient fresco with the two saints invoked to protect themselves from the plague

In the urban and no longer officiated church of Sant’Antonio Abate there is a fragment of an ancient fresco dating back to the first quarter of the sixteenth century. The painting by the Master of Palazzolo depicts the Madonna crowned by the angels between Saints Sebastian and Rocco.

...

It is a work originally performed in a sacred shrine outside the castle, at the intersection of the two roads leading to San Lorenzo in Campo and Arcevia respectively. The presence of these two saints invoked for protection from the plague allows us to date the work was performed between the twenties and thirties of the sixteenth century, years when the plague, along with typhus and famine rages throughout Italy.
