Ripacandida, city of honey, wine and oil, but also the home of saints and lords, stands out from the top of a withish hill, from which its name derives. In this small town of the Vulture area there is a church, dedicated to Saint Donato, richly decorated with a series of frescoes, which, due to the grandeur of representation, themes and technique, have been compared to those of the Upper Basilica of Assisi. Inspired by Giotto’s art, the cycle depicts episodes from the Old and the New Testaments, using the technique of division into scenes.
