  • The twin canvas, executed by Giuseppe Viscardi for the church of Sant'Agostino in Cittaducale, depicts the Holy Hermit Bishop Tommaso da Villanova, canonized in 1658 by Pope Alexander VII. And perhaps precisely on the centenary anniversary of this event, so important for the Augustinian Order, the Rieti painter of Leonessan origins who had already given excellent proof of his art in setting up the chapel of San Vincenzo Ferrer, first in cornu Epistulae in the cathedral of Rieti, was called by the Civitese friars to embellish their basilica hall. As in the beautiful canvas of the Madonna della Cintura, the artist proposes a lively scene, crowded with characters, elegant in the line, rich and bright in color, enhancing one of the salient features of the personality of the Holy Archbishop of Valencia who perhaps, in his experience as a preacher and as an ascetic, he will have practiced charity towards the poor with discretion and reserve, well aware of the dictates of the Gospel, but to rise to the task of representing this virtue so as to be a witness and example of it, a very high yet practicable model for the clergy and laity he is represented in the garments that symbolize his episcopal dignity, under the pleased gaze of Saint Anthony of Padua who - let us not forget - embarked on his religious life in the Order of Saint Augustine. In the lower register of the canvas, an unfortunate family is depicted, the elderly father, perhaps disabled, who holds out his grateful hand, the mother with her children who, grateful, receives the offering from the Saint who lovingly helps her. In the upper right corner, two angels with the cross of Lorraine with a play of glances seem to approve the work of the Saint.
  • The church looks beautiful but closed.
