Basilica of St. Francis
History Salvaged has acquired several small branches of Italian Olive Tree from the Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi, Italy, that were trimmed during recent maintenance of the grounds.
According to the UNESCO World Heritage Committee, Assisi constitutes a singular model of continuous history that is intertwined with this city-sanctuary's cultural and territorial identity. In particular, the Basilica of St. Francis brings together a number of masterpieces of creative human genius and is an extraordinary example of the type of architectonic complexity that has significantly influenced the development of art and architecture.
We are honored to have had the opportunity to work with Basilica of St. Francis and to create a few special heirlooms for the faithful and collectors alike.
Architects, bricklayers and stonemasons have helped to shape Assisi’s incomparable landscape, yet the historical figure that has long defined its destiny and the locality itself has been, without a doubt, St. Francis, the Saint who talked with the animals. To him is dedicated Assisi’s most important monument, the Basilica of St. Francis, which is comprised of two churches and a crypt, rediscovered in 1818. It is the resting spot of the Saint’s tomb, located inside a simple sarcophagus that rests on top of a bare rock.
