Recanati - Church of S. Filippo

 
The first construction, started in 1665, was soon followed in 1722 by a second that saw the demolition of the first building and the creation of a second church to a design by the architect Romolo Broglio from Treia. The façade was built subsequently (1774). The interior consists of a single chamber, with lunette barrel vaulted ceiling and two lateral chapels on each side. There is exteremely sumptuous gold leaf gilding on the high altar (1735) that houses the painting by Pier Simone Fanelli showing Saint Philip in the Catacombs. The four minor side chapels all have altars with altarpieces in stucco and scagliola and are richly decorated.

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.
