Rosciolo , in the municipality of Magliano dei Marsi in the province of L'Aquila, rises on top of one of the hills that surround the south base of the massive pyramid of Velino Mount. Coming from the main city we should take a break as soon as the settlement is in sight to photograph the village in which are still visible the remains of medieval walls, buttresses and access doors; approaching too much the perspective from below diminishes the impressiveness of the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie bell tower. Glimpses, bleachers, doors invite you to walk the narrow streets of the oldest part of which still preserves spontaneous architecture of the '400 or to isolate architectural details ornately present on the church facade, unfortunately, the small overlooking square is always invaded by the omnipresent cars. The most interesting, visiting Rosciolo, are the two churches: Santa Maria delle Grazie and Santa Maria in Val Porclaneta, the first of the '400 and the second dating before the 1084. The beauty of the paintings and the richness of the architecture enchant the visitor and our thoughts go to those who wanted to dedicate these art works to ancient devotions.
