  • It must be really delicious attend a concert in this small environment, under the gaze of the patron saint of music. The frescoes are preserved; episodes from the life of Saints Cecilia and Valerian can be appreciated better with the support of a good guide, thanks to which you can also take a cue from this place to delve into the story of gentlemen Bentivoglio, creators of the oratory and driven out of town by Pope Julius II in 1506.

  • Interesting history of this oratory and the porch overlooking the entrance. Equally interesting frescoes on the life of Saint Cecilia. Consider also that in this charming area you can enjoy concerts interesting music Renaissance, Baroque or classical.

  • 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.
