VITTORE CRIVELLI
Virgin Mary adoring the Infant Jesus

Based on some studies carried out in 1834, the Falerone community commissioned the panel to Vittore Crivelli in order to furnish an altar of St. Lucky's church. The work was composed according to a sophisticated system of volume balance and seems to be divided by the Virgin Mary elegant figure. To accentuate the Christ martyrdom image there is an apple and a cucumber hanging from the panel top along with the jar with five red pink carnations. A special attention should be deserved to the Virgin's mantle.

VITTORE CRIVELLI
Madonna of the Belt and devotees

 

In 1460 Massa Fermana experienced dramatic moments because of the plague spread, so the citizens then wanted to commission a panel to be protected from the plague by the Great St. Mother. The Virgin Mary seats centrally and holds the blessing Child with a red carnation in his plump fingers, well-known symbol of his future saving sacrifice. St. Lorenzo, St. Francis, St. Sylvester and St. Sebastian are painted in the center. They offer a city detailed model to the Virgin that surrounds it in a charitable and protective way with a golden belt.
