Photographer's Note

Spello is a delightful town at the foot of Mount Subasio, a well preserved medieval corner. Its very fertile soil is cultivated with cereals, vines and olives. It is from this last plant that Spello draws its most precious gourmet product: extra virgin olive oil. It is no coincidence that the city, as well as being among the most beautiful villages in Italy, is part of the National Association of Oil Cities.
There are weekly markets and flourishing folklore events, including the Infiorata del Corpus Domini and the oil festival, held respectively in the months of May-June and December-January. In the town there are numerous Roman and Renaissance works, the church of Santa Maria Maggiore, the largest of Spello, boasts splendid frescos by Pinturicchio, kept in the Baglioni Chapel.
