Carassai Things to Do
Carlo Crivelli Tour
Once in Carassai you have the possibility to discover one of the best painter in history.
Carol Crivelli (circa 1430-5-circa 1495) is one of the great minor Renaissance masters who had a partiucularly striking style of rich details and patterns and strong outlines. "While his highly unique and eccentric vision has some affinities with artists such as Mantegna and his followers, Crivelli is a relatively isolated artistic figure; he and his family plied their trade in relative quiet in the Marchigian town of Ascoli Piceno.
Here are some of the places in Le Marche where you can find Crivelli's works:
