Sec. XVII-XVIII

We do not possess documented information regarding the House of the Priests. Its location in the historic center of Scorrano, within the walls of the old town, does not allow to formulate specific hypotheses about its original destination. Even the site’s urban layout helps that much in the understanding of its function.

Inside the building, however, the murals were discovered during the restoration works of plaster, consists of a single room with a barrel vault and belongs to a courtyard house.

The murals, discovered fortuitously during the execution of the rehabilitation work of the compartment plasters, develop, to horizontally, along the vault, on the fireplace and on the south wall. The currently recognizable images are round with frame within which depicts landscapes with genre scenes and religious images.
