  • Before accessing inside to see the wonderful frescoes (it is called the Sistine Chapel), recommend you see outside towards piazza Verdi wall of the oratory where you can see the remains of the ancient walls of Bologna composed of Blackbirds and the side of St James Church where it is celebrated the feast of Santa Rita on 22 May of each year.

  • Very nice although not perfectly preserved this sixteenth-century oratory with frescoes that tell the stories of Saints valerian and Cecilia and attached to the Church of St James, whose entrance is free. The proud artists Lorenzo Costa, Francesco France, Jean Marie Chiodarolo, Cesare Tamaroccio, Biagio Pupini, perhaps the Bagnacavallo, and Amico Aspertini gave us this masterpiece made between 1505 and 1506, to admire and rediscover. Free entry, photo prohibited and is open from 1 October to 31 March 10.00-13.00 and 14.00-18.00; While from 1 June to 30 September 10.00-13.00 and 15.00-19.00. Not to be missed especially when doing concerts, currently true vocation of this place!
