Church and Convent of San Francesco - Lugnano in Teverina
The church and Convent of St. Francis was built in 1229 where the Saint preached and performed a miracle in 1212.
In the church you can admire the fresco recalling the miracle: the Saint sends a duck to release a child who has been attacked by a wolf. This fresco has been recently restored.
In restoration work performed in 1600, in line with the changing tastes of that time, the fresco was re-painted using casein tempera, modifying the colours of some components as well as adding a landscape to the background of the painting.
