St. MARY IN THE CHAPEL

S. MARIA IN CAPPELLA
1090. It was originally known as S. Maria ad Pineam 
Maybe the name comes from a wrong interpretation of the words que appella in an old inscription
BELL TOWER of the twelfth century
It was restored in the late 1700s and then there was a radical restoration in the years 1880/92 by Andrea Busiri Vici (1818/1911) who rebuilt the fa├žade and restored the aisles
OSPEDALE DEI CRONICI (Hospital for Chronic Illnesses)
Attached to the church, founded in 1391, rebuilt in the years 1857/75 by Andrea Busiri Vici
