Church of Santi Ippolito e Cassiano


The church is part of those charitable settlements which were widespread in the Middle Ages and located near the ancient road network. The church is reached by following a suggestive ramp where there are eight chapels built after World War II as an ex-voto for peace. It was built in the 15th century and has retained its original forms: a single hall layout and a very simple facade. It is counterpointed by the decorative richness of the interior completely frescoed with the “Stories of the Passion of Christ”, Evangelists and doctors of the Church. The frescoes are by an anonymous artist with references to the Ferramola school. The tradition of carrying the Madonna in procession on the occasion of calamity was consolidated. The centrality of the Marian cult took precedence in popular devotion to the titular saint for whom in the eighteenth century the oratory was called Madonna di San Cassiano.
