Church of SS Annunziata in Salice
Of the church, with a Latin cross plan, today only the transept and a side wall of the nave remain after the collapse probably due to the 1908 earthquake.
The clearly Renaissance church still has two large central round arches: one constitutes the opening of the apse, the other joined the transept to the nave.
On the sides of the transept, two circular openings allowed the light to penetrate inside.
The beautiful sixteenth-century high altar has in the center a valuable high-relief of white marble, of circular shape, inside which a curly angel Gabriel brings the announcement to Mary.
He alights on the ground, bending his knees, causing the distraction of Mary, intent on reading, reacts upset.
At the top center a dove alludes to the presence of the Holy Spirit and symmetrically below an elegant vase filled with lilies placed on the floor of the room. Source: https://www.geosearch.it
