◇ CULTURE ◇
BLACK VIRGIN MARY
OF BLACK MADONNA WITH WHITE-SKINNED CHILD
Originally the church was blessed on 8 September 1685. The current church was designed by the architect Meschi di Lecco and is built on three naves. It was inaugurated on March 24, 1968. The church preserves the statue of the black Madonna dating back to the 1600s and reproduces the Madonna of Loreto. This statue perhaps represents the only case of a black Madonna with a white-skinned Child in her arms.
