Enjoy this one-day tour of an important architectural monument in Cellere to the patron Sant’Egidio Abate. The church of Sant’Egidio is one of the first Renaissance works of Sangallo. Those who are interested in religious history will be fascinated with this tour.
Located about 90 kilometres northwest of Rome, it is in the middle of a valley and very isolated. The building dates from 1512 to 1520 and was commissioned by Cardinal Alessandro Farnese to Antonio da Sangallo the Younger, an architect active during the Renaissance and Mannerism. The plan of the original project is preserved at the Gallery Uffizi in Florence.
The church was defined asa small jewel of art and a beautiful expression of the Renaissance for the harmony of its lines. With a Greek cross symbol, it has a preserved hexagonal floor and the walls are adorned with frescoes showcasing excellent workmanship and historical and artistic importance.
The exploration of this monument can focus on the history, architecture and even with art workshops, as it is an amazing site.
Your adventure awaits!
