HistoryEdit

The church and the adjacent Franciscan convent were erected between 1470 and 1474, under the patronage of the Pallavicini. Inside, in a rocaille Niche is sheltered the terracotta statues of Grieving over the Dead Christ (1476–77) by Guido Mazzoni.

Other works are a Deposition (circa 1543-44) by Nicolò dell'Abate and a Madonna and Franciscan Saints (1580 cc) by Antonio Campi.[1]

The convent was suppressed in 1810, but reopened in 1816. [2]
