Locatedin the end of a narrow street, it was built in 1851 with neoclassical taste.The building of the church is tied to a miraculous event: in 1690 MarchionessPapazzurri made one stick up the image of the Virgin along the narrow street.On the 9th of July 1796 the image supposedly moved the pupils. Thefact recalled many pilgrims to the exent that the narrow street was closed withan iron gate. On that place a small newsstand was built, substituted with alittle church by Virginio Vespignani dedicated to the Madonna dell’Archetto. Thechurch was then open to the public in 1859. The interior is based on a Latin cross with apanelled ceiling with golden stucco. On the altar one finds the image of theVirgin within a frame of gilded wood.
