  • I know I know, our modern religion prescribes to be independent, brilliant, admired and master of your own destiny. However, there are times in life when all these certainties crumble, for example when, like hanged man, we hear the snare of death squeezing around the neck. The "Sanctuary of the Blessed Virgin of Graces" by Curtatone (MN) will help you in this reflection because, in the sixteenth century, friar Francesco da Acquanegra fills the church with skits with "mannequins" of coloured papier-mache, which are "ex-votes" ordered by whom, " By Grace received "from the Blessed Virgin, she escaped a mortal danger and wants to remember the most dramatic moment. And you wonder how our modern ex-votes could be... Perhaps filled with technological objects, such as crashed cars and tools for resuscitation. In fact even today the crocodile-death (which you can see here stuffed and hung on the ceiling of the nave) is always lurking and suddenly attacks us, without reason, so... At random.

  • It is a very peculiar sanctuary, even a bit disturbing for some traits... The former votes represented with paper mache statues that are placed in wooden niches on the walls give the sanctuary an austere but curious aspect. The lighting is timed... Very strange choice. Very nice The cloister and the picture of the Madonna placed on the altar.

  • The sanctuary is very nice and particular but the schedules are a little unhappy, especially on Sunday close at 12 and reopen at 15 is exaggerated.
