Discovering the churches of Bormio - Guided tour to the Church of S. Spirito by the "Volunteers for the culture"
Church of S. Spirito
Now deconsecrated, it was recently purchased and restored by the Municipality of Bormio Since the beginning of the 19th century, the structure has been abandoned as a place of worship to become first a barn, then a tool shed, a dormitory and finally a private home. The structure is worth a visit thanks to the beautiful frescoes preserved inside and enhanced by recent restoration work.
As far as the origin of the paintings is concerned, those on the walls and in the apse can be dated to the 15th century, while the vault, which is stylistically and thematically uniform, would seem to date back to the first half of the 16th century. Among the most important frescoes worth mentioning are The Coronation of the Virgin (probably the work of Giovannino da Sondalo's workshop) and the scene of the Virgin Orsola with her husband, attributable to Bertolino de Buris.
