Church of Santa Maria di Pietrarossa - Trevi
Among the most famous monuments of the Trevano is undoubtedly the Church of Santa Maria di Pietrarossa.
The name of the church and of the locality is given by a red stone which is now embedded in the second pillar, to the right of whoever enters the church. A very ancient tradition, perhaps dating back to paganism, attributed thaumaturgical powers in the treatment of infertility. The church was built over the remains of an ancient Roman building, perhaps a temple or perhaps ancient baths built near the river Clitunno.
The building retains the original strongly asymmetrical structure, with a rather irregular pattern, in which no measure exactly matches the parallel one, as is often the case in medieval rural churches.
A portico with a wooden roof and tiles surrounds the church on three sides, the interior has a basilica plan with three naves, divided by irregularly shaped pillars, three in the left aisle and four in the right, which support lowered arches, of which the left center is very broad.
Characteristic of the church is the presence of an incredible number of ex voto frescoes, largely depicting the Madonna and Child, there are at least ninety, I propose some of the most significant, not all, of course. Again by Bartolomeo da Miranda is the Madonna del Melagrano: the virgin in the left hand holds the pommel, with the arm and the right hand supports the Child, who keeps his gaze turned towards a long gothic inscription, unfortunately indecipherable.
