Artist's Description

The church of San Pietro in Perugia was begun in 926 CE. When it was remodelled with these elegant renaissance cloisters and bell-tower, contemporary churches in Britain were still being built in the gothic style. Here the campanile is seen framed by one of the cloister’s many arches.

Inside, the church retains its ancient basilican form. It has a colourful ceiling and there are works by Perugino in the nave and sacristy, while the inlaid choir stalls and stone pulpits are also very fine.

All in all, what we have today is something created to honour the long Christian tradition. The whole complex falls within Perugia’s designated Centro Storico.
