SANCTUARY OF THE NATIVITY OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY IN NOVEZIO

Description

Close to the Trinale Valley, on the Cerete-Songavazzo provincial road, in the village of Novezio, is the Sanctuary of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary and it is part of the Parish Church of S.S. Filippo and Giacomo in Cerete Alto.

A small and fascinating building, an important testimony of faith and art, where you can admire numerous works of art: the vault frescoed by Brighenti in 1883, two paintings by Cifrondi dated 1710 and a painting in the altarpiece by Pietro Ronzelli from 1593.

In 1857, a furious fire devastated the whole structure. It isn’t possible to ascertain the origins of the sanctuary and the motivation behind its construction because all the documentation relating to the church was destroyed in the fire.
