#ARTMOMENT: La Rocca Maggiore

La Rocca

#RoccaMaggiore has loomed over Assisi for almost 1,000 years, constituting the most viable fortification for their defense.  In 1198, a 16-year-old St. Francis once participated in storming the fortress during a battle between the citizens and the nobility. It was eventually rebuilt but never to its former glory.
