Church of the Santissima Trinità

Church of the Santissima Trinità - Avigliano Umbro

Situated in Avigliano Umbro, the Church of the Santissima Trinità is the parish church of the village. In the 17th century it was built as an integral part of the castle of the Vici family. The bishop of Todi Rodolfo consecrated the altar, as stated in a document.

In the following centuries it was completely restored and unfortunately this restoration impoverished the pictorial decoration of the building.

In fact, during the restoration many walls were whitewashed, and this caused the loss of many frescoes inside the church.

However, some works remained like the precious Madonna of the Rosary between St. John the Evangelist, St. Dominic, St. Catherine and St. Cecilia by Andrea Polinori. Some other frescoes remained depicting saints including Sant'Antonio Abate and a Conversion of St. Paul  attributed to Bartholomeo Barbiani of Montepulciano and a 17th-century Madonna with Saints between Sant'Anthony of Padua and Santa Barbara.

Also worth noting inside the church are a 14th-century silver and enamel cross and two paintings, also by Polinori, depicting the Deposition and San Lorenzo.
