Precious macramè needle jewels that reproduce the rose window: an element set on the facade of the churches, that is the highest expression of the creativity and intelligence of artists.
Under the architectural point of view a rose window is a hole, even if it is filled with wonderful stone lace, which creates a special relationship between the exterior and the interior of the church.
This is one of the most elegant rose windows in Umbria and has a very neat radiant pattern: two large orders of spiral columns (they didn’t exist before being employed at Saint Francis in Assisi) and little connecting pointed arches that rotate around a central pivot made of high relief foliage. The effect of “rotation” is emphasized by the wide border projecting towards the centre. For the stability of the structure the outer ring of small columns has been walled up.
