Asilo e oratorio Santa Rosa

The foundations designed for the Parish Church of Predappio have been used to build, according to a project of Florestano di Fausto, a kindergarten and a small oratory. The whole complex is devoted to Santa Rosa da Lima, in honour of Mussolini’s mother, and is looked after by the Ursuline nuns. It hosts two valuable works of art, the “Madonna del Fascio” (Our Lady of the Fasces), a mosaic by the Portuguese artist Da Silva in azulejos style, and the “Madonna del Libro” (Our Lady of the Book), a Tuscan School painting of the 15th-16th century.
