The Church of Santa Maria dell'Assunta and Piazza di "Corte"
The church finds in front of the Chigi's palace, like a point of junction of the square with the two fountains and the town's centre.

The present aspect of the church has been completely modified by the building of the viaduct, that splitting the square in two parts has destroyed the perspectives designed by Bernini. The church's architectural structure, a circular plan, reminds in some way of the Church of the Pantheon in Rome. It was ended in 1664 and it is was completely stuccoed by A. Raggi. The fresco in the apsidal bowl-shaped vault, representing the Assumption, was painted by G. Borgognone. The side altars are decorated by several paintings, among which those painted by the Gimignani brothers, by R. Vanni, and by B. Mei.
