The Assisi Cathedral is a very particular church painted by Giotto and his school and above another church ( that I like a lot as well) . Passing from one church to the other you could visit the beautiful Perkins collection

Blimey. One of the more spectacular churches ever. The top part is pretty European standard though more gorgeous than most, and then it gets really interesting when you descend into the chapel of Saint Francis, which is all hushed and where he's actually buried. It kind of simultaneously gave me the willies and made me feel awestruck.

This strange and beautiful church was the biggest and most important in Assisi until the 1200s - and is where St. Francis and St. Clare both were baptized. It currently houses lots of religious art, including an interesting wooden sculpture of Our Lady of Sorrows weeping over the Christ in her arms - an exact copy of a 15th century German terracotta that was recently stolen. This church also houses a museum of the diocese below the main room and a fascinating (if strange) painting installation paying homage to Pope John Paul II to the right of the main cathedral.

Il portale dell'ingresso è una rara espressione della maestria tutta italiana di chi riesce a governare con la sua arte il metallo ed il legno. Al suo interno potrete scoprire gli affreschi di Dono Doni come la Crocifissione, la Deposizione che risalgono alla seconda metà del XVI secolo.
Un silenzio iconico, carico di significati, come è il silenzio delle chiese, nella ricerca senza nome di speranza e pace.
