Church of S. Cosimo

Dedicated to Saints Cosmas and Damian, it was erected between 1780 and 1789 at the behest of the Confraternity of Suffrage. It has a beautiful façade made of bare stone.

The church was the seat of the Confraternity of Suffrage that had it erected between 1780 and 1789 on the design of the architect Sebastiano Sassi. In 1800, the famous neoclassical painter Felice Giani was called upon to decorate the apse basin of the church. Unfortunately, in 1929 the Giani paintings disappeared under the current decoration made by local painters Cesare and Mario Camporesi. The statue of Our Lady of Suffrage is located in a niche in the apse. The work shows close tangencies with the Genoese wooden sculpture of the second half of the 16th century. The second altar on the left houses a small image of Our Lady of Sorrows made in the first decades of the 18th century by an unknown painter from Romagna with a swan ambit. In the second altar on the right there is a valuable eighteenth-century wooden crucifix.

How to get there: Located in the historic centre of the town. It can be reached on foot from any parking areas in the centre.

Additional notes: The Feast of Saint Rita takes place here on the third or fourth Sunday of May, while the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows takes place on the third Sunday of September.
