Photographer's Note

Basilica of San Nicola - Tolentino (MC)
It suffered serious damage from the earthquakes of 2016, so today the beautiful façade covered in travertine, of great artistic interest, is not visible; in particular the portal, work of the Florentine sculptor Nanni di Bartolo called il Rosso, in which elements of the flowery gothic are admirably blended with spatial effects typical of the early Renaissance. The Augustinian cloister dates back to the first half of the fourteenth century: it represents the oldest example of cloister of mendicant orders in Italy. The place of greatest artistic interest of the complex is the "Cappellone di San Nicola", unfortunately today largely hidden by scaffolding. Its pictorial decoration is exceptional, one of the largest and best preserved of the early fourteenth century, work of the Rimini craftsmen led by the painter Pietro da Rimini.
