The Gothic charm of the San Vigilio Church in Tassullo

The San Vigilio Church in Tassullo (Trento) dates back to the end of the fifteenth century and keeps its particular Gothic style intact. Originally the church was dedicated to the Anauniensi Martyrs. A boundary wall delimits the ancient cemetery of this Church. It has a bell-shaped façade enriched by a pointed rose stone portal with multi-cords decorations and a circular marble rosette. Down three steps you are in the single nave entrance that ends with the hexagonal presbytery. On the left wall of the priesthood, it is possible to admire a painting by S. Vigilio with the coat of arms of the Thun (1495); in the middle wall, there is the crucifixion, while on the right wall the Madonna enthroned with the Child. The church housed the marvelous wooden altar – now kept by the Diocesan Museum of Trento. The work is dated April 5, 1520, and has the shape of a Gothic triptych with two movable doors that bear various representations (S. Lorenzo, S. Maria Maddalena) and on the back symbols of the Passion and the Tabarelli crest of Fatis.
