St. Nicholas Church - Schioppo - Scheggino - Umbria

The church of St. Nicholas reveals its Romanesque origins in the lancet in the bell gable with two arches, laterally, and reassembled in the portal in the apse wall when, in the radical restructuring of the sixteenth century, it has also changed the orientation of the church.
The only nave covered internal trusses, contains a valuable sixteenth-century pictorial decoration and the remains of the previous decoration of the fifteenth century.
On the back wall depicts a Crucifixion, alongside a Trinity, dated 1507.
On the left wall a Madonna Enthroned with Child reveals yet gothic features.
It follows a theory of saints: St. Peter, St. Paul and seven other saints or holy.
The presbytery covered cruise with double wedges still is completely painted with grotesques and the four Evangelists in medallions (late sixteenth century), on the left wall, two paintings of saints very damaged, relevant to the fifteenth-century decoration. The walls are decorated with canopies. On the altar wall, on the left, St. Anthony Abbot, St. Nicholas in the niche, Madonna and Child with Angels and Saint John, Saint Lucia on the right, missing the head.
Altar altarpiece painted wood with a central figure of Saint Nicholas of Bari in the late eighteenth century.
On the right wall, the upper register, St. Anthony of Padua, recognizable by the lily, is curiously portrait with fire in his hand, the usual attribute of Sant'Antonio Abate.
Following a devotional fresco, dated 1541, that the developer kneeling dedicating to San Vito for the grace received healing by the bite of a snake.
Underneath a Saint of the fifteenth century bishop.
