Pertaining to the State Archives of Belluno, the church of Santa Maria dei Battuti (early 14th century) arose as a place of worship for the adjacent School of Flagellants. Will it be enriched over the centuries with works of high artistic level, which, with the Napoleonic suppressions of the first decades of the nineteenth century, were dispersed, sold or transferred, as happened for the beautiful altarpiece by Paris Bordon, now preserved at the Bode Museum in Berlin. A very recent restoration has redeemed the church from two centuries of neglect, enhancing the wide and luminous nave with a balanced dialogue between ancient fifteenth-century structures and contemporary service facilities. Designed for a modern and flexible use? equipped with conference stage, seating, sound system, display cases, wiring system, elevator, floor and wall heating, toilets and how much? necessary to propose the ancient building among the pi? large and prestigious multi-purpose rooms in the province of Belluno. It has the safety certification required by current legislation. A small oak park borders the church and? accessible exclusively from the conference room and from the State Archive; from the belvedere there is a suggestive view of the Ardo valley. From the garden,? can I log in? agreeing in advance the permit? to the main complex of the State Archive (the ancient headquarters of the Confraternity or School of Santa Maria dei Battuti): in the study room you can admire frescoes along the walls of the late fifteenth century, while the ceiling? decorated with 44 small-sized painted wooden tablets, always datable towards the end of the 15th century.
