Spoleto Cathedral InteriorrnThe interior of the Duomo di Spoleto has three naves and six arches, with Corinthian capitals. During 1638 Pope Urban VIII, who was Bishop of Spoleto, explicitly wanted the interior to be radically transformed into Baroque style. Of the ancient Romanesque system remains only the floor of the central nave and the central apse. And it is in the latter that it is possible to admire the cycle of frescoes made by Fra 'Filippo Lippi and completed, after the death of the artist, by Fra' Diamante and Pier Matteo d'Amelia. The pictorial cycle has as its main protagonist the Virgin Mary that is depicted from left to right in the scene of the Annunciation, the Transit, the Nativity and the Bezel in the Incoronation.rnThe apse is closed by the main altar made in the nineteenth century by architect Giuseppe Valadier, the same who designed Piazza del Popolo and Pincio in Rome. He also has to draw the doors and side altars. Inside the central nave of the Duomo is also the funeral monument dedicated to Filippo Lippi, who died in 1469 while performing frescoes in the apse.r
