Fresco

Nowadays the San Rufino in Arce Church is incorporated in a house belonging to the Suore Francescane Missionarie di Susa. The church was assigned to this female religious order in 1998. The San Rufino Cathedral in Assisi retains ownership of the church, however.

During restoration works several 15th and 16th century frescoes were brought to light. These contain a “Madonna on the Throne”, a “Saints Cosma and Damiano” and a “Nativity Scene”.
