Share

the company of the Battuti of Varzi and the Arch Confraternity of the Gonfalon of Rome, in 1636 they decided to build a their oratory, since they could no longer reside on the premises that had rented in the church of the Annunziata (which was located at the bottom of via Porta Sottana) because the water of Stàffora li encroached periodically.

On the north side of track inside we find the Whites' Church, built in 1646 by the Confraternity of the Gonfalon (the name of this oratory derives from the color of the hood that wore the members of the Brotherhood). This oratory is unique in its genre, because despite being very small, its interior is made in the form of a four-leaf clover, in imitation of the great cathedrals.
