Photographer's Note

Hermitage of the Madonna di Panico or Paganico.
A Paganica Villa is included in the list of castles that in 1490 supplied infantrymen to the town of Spoleto to fight in Frénfrano. Few people know this splendid place hidden in the mountains where a small treasure of Umbrian Romanesque art is hidden, a church perhaps built on a pre-existing building of pagan origin, as the name "Paganico" would suggest and various Roman remains found there between which a stone with the name of the Clustumina tribe carved into it. In the sacristy of the church, Sordini reports the existence of a fragment of a decorated sarcophagus, on which an inscription is engraved, while Pietrangeli refers to a cippus with decoration and inscription dating back to the 1st century. A.D. Also from this locality the provenance of a further funerary stone with inscription is reported. Of particular importance is the inscription, which mentions a Calvedius from Carsulae, as well as the shape of the stone itself which falls within the so-called "Carsulana" typology. These facts would support the thesis that the border between the two Roman municipalities would pass in the area, excluding the site of the Church of Santa Maria from the Spoleto territory.
