Why this site (and thanks)

The site wants to be a no-profit celebration of the faith, the village, art and painting of this artist, who much has achieved in the XVo century in our regions.
Since there are few news, I wanted to start collecting all the material published in all these decades by most illustrious scholars and lovers of local art to have a consultable archive for people who were interested, and of course you are asked to report any inaccuracies, as to provide us (if you want) new material. We also apologize for the many black and white photos, some of them even a bit outdated; as soon as possible with time and with the good season will be republished better photos.
A big thank you goes mainly to the late Dr. Geronimo Raineri , who has contributed in a passionate way to the study of the art of Monregalese; if this site can exist and give a lot of information is thanks to him.   I would also like to thank all those who have participated in all these years with profusion of time, effort and investment, to the preservation of the chapel and the fact that after so many years he is still here to show us his beautiful frescoes and to excite us.   That's all folks !
