Santa Maria della Consolazione

< previous > < index > < next >

The apse end is embellished architecturally, as it faces down the street next to the former hospital. In the middle of the apse wall in the place of a window is a fresco of the Madonna and Child, protected by a little lead canopy. This was by Niccolò Berrettoni. There are two identical campanili on the far walls of the chapels at the end of the aisles. The lower storey of the right hand campanile has had a clock inserted into it.
