THE FRESCOES OF THE CRYPT #4

We are now on the opposite side of the crypt with respect to the frescoes previously presented with Christ on the cross. Here instead what is about? It is a sixteenth-century fresco with the Madonna and Child in the center, St. John the Baptist on the left and, on the right, St. Roch, a very important protector against the plague. The figure below, dressed in black, with abundant drapery, aristocratic dress, is probably the figure of the commissioner. Is there also a further fragment of fresco, even if it appears more faded? Yes, but we can recognize it, the subject is clear enough. There are angels who bring a house and below the Madonna with the Child so it should be the Madonna of Loreto.
