Chapel of San Rocco, Giove

Chapel of San Rocco

The chapel of San Rocco was built around the sixteenth century as an offering to the saint against the plague, along the Amerina road that leads from Giove to Amelia.

Inside it preserves a cycle of votive paintings attributed to Lorenzo and Bartolomeo Torresani, still partly under plaster, with thematic iconographic features typical of cycles against the plague. A sixteenth-century fresco of the Foligno school of the Crucifixion depicts in its lower portion the city of Jerusalem. The chapel has been converted into a War Memorial.
