Campo Tassullo and the ancient Church of Santa Lucia

Campo is one of the four Villas of Tassullo (Trento) and is on the road that connects the town to Nanno, in a place where once there was a cemetery or a holy field, where the Villa would have received its denomination. Here it is worth visiting the church of Santa Lucia, mentioned for the first time in 1448; this evocative place of worship seems to date back to the Romanesque period, with the bell-shaped façade that faces east towards the street; here you can see the full-sixth portal in Pink Stone and a rococo window instead of the central rosette. The interior is a single nave and ends with a small pentagonal presbytery; the central oil painting depicts Saint Lucia with the symbology of martyrdom while the altar, in carved and painted wood, has a beautiful ornate leather antependium.

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.
