Chiesa di Santa Maria in Vado, Ferrara

(4.3/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
Santa Maria in Vado is a church located on Via Borgovado number 3 in Ferrara, Region of Emilia-Romagna, Italy.HistoryThe church derives its name from a guado or fording that was located nearby. A church at the site was documented since the tenth century, but on Easter of 1171, a miracle occurred when blood spouted from the eucharist during consecration. This made the church an object of pilgrimage. This miracle that appears to confirm transubstantiation resembles the subsequent events depicted in The Mass at Bolsena by Raphael.Reconstruction was started in 1495 under the patronage of Ercole de' Roberti under the designs of Biagio Rossetti. The church was included in the zone known as the Addizione Erculea. The church contains paintings by Carlo Bononi, Camillo Filippi, Prospero Fontana, Giuseppe Antonio Ghedini, and Domenico Mona.

  • The Church of Santa Maria in Vado surprise even those living in other towns, was accustomed to other churches. Its architecture, frescoes, everything makes this place a destination to be inserted in the visit of Ferrara. For those who are sensitive to the spiritual aspect, it is a particular place, home to a Eucharistic Miracle.
