POI BRIEF DESCRIPTION
Description of the POI The Santa Rosa Church and Kindergarten was initially designed as the main church of Predappio Nuova and then converted into a kindergarten with a small oratory attached. The whole complex is devoted to Santa Rosa da Lima, in honour of Mussolini’s mother, and 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.

RELEVANT INFORMATION
Type of tourist experience The ceramic work Madonna del Fascio, placed inside Santa Rosa kindergarten, is certainly one of the most surprising works of the Fascist period as it represents an unique example from an iconographic point of view: it proposes a singular combination between the revival of Italian Renaissance iconographic models, the symbolism of the Regime and the great tradition of the Portuguese azulejo.
