Nel 1616, mentre era Pievano Don ... more »The Basilica Santuario Maria SS. del Suffragio was built in 1625 on a former church dedicated to Saint John the Baptist from the 8th-10th century. In 1616, while he was parish priest Don Ascanio Salci, came to preach in the caves the Capuchin Father Angelo from Ronciglione. Tenacious diffuser of Marian devotion and humble friar, sent from Rome in Grotte di Castro a wooden statue of the Madonna (anonymous) from via del Lago, which connected the country to Bolsena. So much was the crush of people who moved to accept that many fell off that Cliff somewhat unstable but, miraculously, no one was hurt. This miracle and the many others that followed attracted pilgrims from all over, so much so that our Lady was called our Lady of miracles. Given the continuous flow of visitors not only was appointed a chaplain in charge of taking care of hospitality, to celebrate masses and singing every day the litanies, but with offers collected it was thought even to erect a new temple more stylish and sumptuous of the existing one. For involvement of the cardinal protector Odoardo Farnese, a so important task was given to the architect Girolamo Rinaldi and the factory started in 1625, was completed with the ovoid dome built by Andrea Sahgal in 1672. On 12 October 1698. Marco Antonio Barbarigo, Bishop of Montefiascone and Corneto, consecrated the sacred edifice in honor of Mary of suffrage and of St John the Baptist. The wooden statue of our Lady of suffrage, protector of the people grottano, is kept covered with a white face, and discovery and celebrated on 18 September each year. It is located in an alcove on a rich Baroque altar with Golden angels that support. Interesting to visit the cellars, already a burial site.View original
