Tolentino, a little Assisi in Marche

Tolentino, province of Macerata, lies on the way to the ancient Varano lands, bordering with Umbria. Today, it is home to an amazing church dedicated to a very famous saint, San Nicola da Tolentino. A masterpiece by the school of Pietro da Rimini, it reminds a lot the celebrated “blue” by Giotto, an amazing painter who worked all around central Italy. In fact, these frescoes look very much alike the much more known ones in Assisi, town of San Francesco.
