In the past the oratory was the Church of San Desiderio; The first information dates from about 1300, when the church was part of a Benedictine nunnery. In 1440 the monastery was suppressed and ten years later the place was transformed into a hospital for pilgrims. In 1515 the complex was restored to its original function as a monastery and entrusted to the Franciscan Sisters. In the period from 1515 to 1574 (the year of the client's death) an important fresco by Sebastiano Vini was created. In the twentieth century, during the war, the building was used as a depot. The fresco of the former church of San Desiderio is considered the most important work of Sebastiano Vini and represents the martyrdom of the Ten Thousand, an episode narrated in the Catalogus Sanctorum et gestorum eorumdel Bishop Pietro de ' Natali. In particular, the fresco depicts the story of the Centurion Acacio, who, with only 9000 soldiers, fighting in the name of Christ, managed to defeat an army of 100000 men. This story is represented by wines without a precise chronological order; The various episodes are distributed in different parts of the scene.
Very rich interior. In an anonymous and poorly reported intersection. You breathe neglect and it is a real pity!
