  • In the winter of 1522, there have been some miraculous facts giving rise to the construction of the sanctuary. The ancient house belonged to the family of Tommaso Zacchaeus. These and his family ran a sort of hostelry. In the upstairs room of the House stood a scroll depicting Christ in piety between Mary and John the Evangelist. On days 8, 9, 10 and January 28, 1522 and then over the next 4 and 27 February, the parchment was seen bleeding. The wounds of the body of Jesus have been revived and drops of blood fell from the square on the chest that lay beneath the scroll. On the evening of 9 January, a small bloody rib, proportionate to the figure of the painting, was released from injured and fell on the table below. Was collected in a cup and carried in procession in the parish church, where it is still kept.
