HistoryEdit

The church with a decorative brick façade was originally called Santa Maria e San Basso, because it encompassed two earlier churches. The church was rebuilt between the 13th and 18th centuries. It houses a 15th-century fresco of an Enthroned Madonna and Child attributed to Lorenzo d’Alessandro. A 17th-century canvas depicting a Madonna del Suffragio was painted for the church of that name.[1]
