Chiesa della Compagnia and Madonna delle Grazie Sanctuary

Built in the 14th century, it is a fine example of local religious architecture. Damaged by the earthquake of 1661, it was restored in 1695, while the most important enlargement was carried out in 1702. At the end of the Napoleonic era, it housed sacred furnishings collected from other churches and saved from the iconoclastic fury of the French. In 1900, to celebrate the anniversary of the rebuilding of the church, the interior was restored and the brick façade was raised and rebuilt in stone. Today’s appearance of the church is due to the work done in 1939. Inside, the following works of art have been preserved:

  • Madonna delle Grazie, a miraculous image found on the wall of Tredozio’s “Molinetto” farmhouse. On July 29, 1752, the Virgin was transferred to the Chiesa della Compagnia church and was publicly canonized as “Mother of Mercy and Perennial Source of Grace”. She is kept in the tabernacle of the chapel built especially for her;
  • The “Sacred Heart of Jesus”, oil on canvas by the Modigliana Macchiaiolo painter Silvestro Lega (1826-1895).
  • The Annunciation, tempera on panel by Lorenzo Monaco, Tuscan school of the late 14th and early 15th centuries.
  • Crucifix and bust of Padre Pio, both in bronze, the work of the local sculptor Leonardo Poggiolini. The current appearance of the façade is due to a recent restoration that brought to light the frescoes on the gable of the church.
