What to see in Scansano, Grosseto, Tuscany


Share

remembered from 1276, it was radically restructured in the XVIII century. In the facade stands out the fifteenth-century portal with a frame to ovules. In the interior there are the altars, realized in the XVIII century in plaster and stucco and some paintings: the Madonna that presents the child to Sant'Anna, of the beginning of the XVII century; the Martyrdom of San Sebastiano, attributed to Stefano Volpi; the Madonna del Soccorso. An elegant framing fifteenth-century polychrome with festoons contained the Madonna of the fledgling, glazed terracotta from the workshop of Andrea della Robbia, stolen in 1971 and replaced by a copy. In the presbytery, wooden statue policromata of Madonna of the XV century. In the apse, a valuable wooden choir from the seventeenth century.
