    Description:

    Executed after Alberti’s death by Luca Fancelli; dome added in 1733 by Filippo Juvarra. The church has a Latin-cross plan with a broad nave and a domed crossing. The nave is covered by a vast, longitudinal barrel vault. Alberti drew his inspiration principally from antique example, as he makes clear in his letter to Ludovico II Gonzaga, where he referred to the design as a templum etruscum (a temple of Etruscan type). It is likely modeled on the Basilica of Maxentius in Rome. For the firs…

    Description:

    Between 1457 and 1461 Agostino was working on the façade of the oratory of S Bernardino, Perugia. Although the architectural framework of the façade recalls Alberti’s design for S Francesco, the sculpture, originally highly polychromed, is rich and intricate, emphasizing line and movement. Above a double door framed by reliefs of angels, a high tympanum contains a relief of St. Bernardino in Glory. God the Father appears in the upper pediment, and four aedicules contain statues.

    Description:

    While a road now leads up to the sanctuary, it is also possible to reach it by traversing a long (3.5 km) monumental roofed arcade (Portico di San Luca) consisting of 666 arches, which was built in 1674-1793. It was meant to protect the icon as it was paraded up the hill, in an annual procession from the Cathedral of San Pietro. Originally the arches held icons or chapels erected by the patron family. The Sanctuary was meant to house a miraculous icon of the Virgin allegedly painted by Luke t…

    The presbytery is separated by an altar screen formed by eight red marble columns crowned with a high Crucifix and statues by Pier Paolo and Jacobello Dalle Masegne, masterpiece of Gothic sculpture (late 14th century).

    Studies by the excavator, Forlati, indicate that S Marco was a centrally planned, Greek-cross building from the start. The present building was begun ca. 1063 under Doge Domenico Contarini (reg 1043-1071), who wished it to reflect the increased power and wealth of Venice. He p…
