Mantova Museo Urbano Diffuso

This attractive church, facing opposite the substantial Palazzo Canossa on the same piazza, was, as the name suggests, built to commemorate how the Virgin protected the city from the earthquake that took place in 1693. The story goes that many worshippers congregated before an image of Mary painted on the wall of a house and were protected from the frightful tremors. That same image is now the altarpiece for the church.
