Giovanni Battista Salvi da Sassoferrato (August 25, 1609 – August 8, 1685), also known as Giovanni Battista Salvi, was an Italian painter, known for his commitment to Raphael's style and for his Madonnas. He is often referred to only by the town of his birthplace (#Sassoferrato), as was customary in his time, and for example seen with da Vinci and Caravaggio.
He was born in our village Sassoferrato, in the Marche region of central Italy, half-way between Rome and Florence, east of Apennines. Frequently, he represented our landscape in his paintings: our mountains, our hills, our valley and our castle.
There are over three hundred works by Sassoferrato in public collections throughout the world, including almost all of his extant drawings in the British Royal Collection at Windsor Castle. In Paris' Louvre you can find a Museum room dedicated to Salvi's paintings.
Some Salvi's works are still in Sassoferrato Museum or Churchs. You could also find in Jesi or Perugia, 40min by car from our villa.

Sì !!!! la fortuna di percorrere queste terre, ma aggiungerei anche la fortuna di viverle.
La nostra è una proposta di TURISMO ATTIVO, per chi ama ricevere adrenalina da un territorio poco antropizzato e ancora per certi versi selvaggio; oppure, di TURISMO SLOW per chi preferisce esperienze più sensoriali, magari gustando un calice di Verdicchio o un salame dop di Fabriano
