  • given the bad weather which has accompanied on the first weekend of March ... is one of the few things we could see ... highly arranged the gentleman who explained the history of the mummies--admission price acceptable ... pity that like many things in art Italy are left a bit to the abandonment ... but if you happen to Urbania ... go there

  • The church opens only during guided tours (from Monday to Friday at 11.30 and at 16; on weekends a visit at the same time in the morning and two in the afternoon). The entrance and visit only cost 2 euros per person and, after taking a look (and took a few pictures) to the chapel at the entrance, you go to the back room (no pictures) where they kept very well (apart from the natural dehydration) the bodies of 18 inhabitants discovered in a mass grave in the cemetery that stood in this place. As explained comprehensively by Mr. Joseph, our guide, a particular mold has preserved their bodies. The guide knows the names and lives of each one of them works wonders in explanations that go far beyond 20 minutes scheduled for the visit. Really unusual experience and guidance from praise!

  • Visit particular which arouses curiosity, the guide Joseph very cozy, naturally manages to tell the reasons and the stories of people whose bodies were mummified. SA to downplay a reality seemingly macabre even with an audience of children!!!

  • Wonderful Little Church with guided visit to the mummies crypt
  • A little small but very impressive. On the inside there are special caskets containing 18 mummified skeletons from a special mold contained in the land where they were found. Particular thing is that explains the stories of each individual who died ... very impressive.

  • Church that welcomes the famous mummies of Urbania the Church dei Morti (Chapel "Cola") is a church located in Urbania, Marche. The building is of 1380. Remarkable the altar-piece of the one altar, depicting the beheading of Saint John the Baptist, opera likely to Justin Episcopi (1560). Inside there are eighteen mummies. The first to carry out the studies was the prior Children of brotherhood of death in the 19th century when the mummies were found. In 1982 Professor Gino Fornaciari of Pisa University had the opportunity to study and to make the first reports in science. Unfortunately the exhibits have never been submitted to carbon dating, nor were the subject of systematic research. Currently on display in the Church and are open to the public, but there are still many questions revolving around these mummies.

  • Special thanks to the help-help (the definition is his) Church of the dead to Urbania that with verve and sympathy only, introduced us to the life, but mostly death, pharmacist Embalmer, Dane crapulone, Renaissance humanist the young man's villain, hanged, murdered and buried alive and that failed, no mean feat, to make it a bit less terrifying even the "sardonic sneer of terror". It is due to his visits to a collection of corpses mummified was less greve and oppressive than it should have been.
