Travel Tips for Panicale

Panicale

by Noel_Leon

If you are visiting the lake Trasimeno region in Central Italy, find the time to drive up the winding road to the top of the hill where lays the small centre of Panicale.

The main attraction is the magnificent view over the lake, its islands and the famous landscapes which adorn the background of numberless renaissance paintings.
But you will also discover a village which preserves its medieval aspect with the remains of the city walls and fortified gates.
Furthermore, in the San Sebastiano Church you can admire a masterpiece of Perugino, the Martyrdom of Saint Sebastian fresco.

A curious anecdote about this fresco circulates as oral tradition in Panicale. It is told that when Perugino ended his work in 1505, eleven of the forty florins agreed as recompense for his job were still unpaid. So he added to the painting thirteen "P" to mean: "Pietro Perugino Pittore Pinse Pittura Porco Prete Panicalese Paga Presto Prezzo Pattuito Pittura" (roughly translated: Pietro Perugino Painter Painted Painting, Pig Panicalean Priest Pay Soon Agreed Price for Painting).
In reality these legendary thirteen "P" were never found even after the painting restoration in the ‘80s. May be the payment finally came or may be it was just the imagination of the locals to create this tale.
