  • The exterior of the basilica has a particular architecture. The statue of the Madonna dominates majestically, especially at night when it is illuminated. Inside the Church are mainly 3 points that attract and lead to prayer:-the crucified to human greatness that are situated right at the entrance-the body of Saint Luigi Orione, the Saint of love and the one who built the shrine itself-another statue of Mary with the infant Jesus, whose intercession he gave many Thanks to which we are witnesses. In front of the shrine stands the little Cottolengo, built by Don Orione, where nuns and expert staff welcome children with severe disabilities. Is a sanctuary of peace and love.
