Cingoli - Cathedral of S. Maria Assunta

For several centuries the records starting in 1230 show that the main church in Cingoli was the parish church of Santa Maria, of which the remains are incorporated into the present-day San Filippo. The work, commissioned to the architect Ascanio Passari di Pergola, required 35 years to complete (1619-1654) excluding the demolition of the surrounding houses and of the small church of San Salvatore, whilst the building of the Cathedral was finished in 1725. The façade was not completed due to lack of funds. The interior, consisting of a single chamber with a transept and apse, was adorned at different times. In the second half of the 17th century it was enriched with sumptuous Baroque-style decorations. Sculptures were then added including notable funeral monuments, which were subsequently followed by paintings.

Due to the earthquake occurred in 2016, the church is temporarily closed. For further information please write to:

Lorenzo Lotto -Painter

Born in Venice around 1480, the young artist Lorenzo Lotto chose to move to Treviso. There Lotto formed a relationship with the humanist circle of Bishop Bernardo De Rossi from Parma, which straight away provided him with advantageous and profitable commissions. In 1508 Lotto was called to the Vatican in Rome to paint the rooms of the new apartment of Julius II. During the period between 1509 and 1516 the movements of the Venetian artist are somewhat obscure. The following decade, spent in Bergamo, was undoubtedly Lotto’s happiest and most creative period. At the end of 1525, after an absence of 20 years, he decided to return to Venice where however the rising star of Titian, with his sensuous and joyful painting, precluded the favour of the patrons towards Lotto. He died in the Marche in 1556 and was buried, at his request, in a Dominican friar’s habit. Lotto accomplished many works in the Marche, providing testimony to his genius and his remarkable personality.
