Pietro Alemanno, St. James of the Marches, fresco

Pietro Alemanno (c. 1430 – 1497 or 1498) was an Italian-Austrian painter of the Renaissance period.

He was born in Göttweig (Austria) and died in Ascoli Piceno. He trained with Carlo Crivelli.

In 1484, Alemanno painted a fresco of the Annunciation for the Palazzo Communale in Ascoli, in which he shows the figures in front of an elaborate architectural setting.[1] In 1489 he painted an altarpiece of Virgin and Child between SS. Michael, Biaise, Jerome, and Nicholas for the church of Santa Maria della Carita. There are a number of his works in the Pinacoteca Civica Fortunato Duranti.
