Santuario di Montenero

The Sanctuary of the Madonna delle Grazie, much more famous as Sanctuary of Montenero, comprises also a rich gallery of ex-votos and the Famedio, the cemetery for the illustrious livornesi. The Sanctuary is constituted by different bodies disposed on a rectangular public square. The main building is the body of the church with a porch and with a bell tower (1820) equipped of mechanical clock and meridian. Along the flanks of the church there is the gallery of the ex-votos, containing approximately 700 representations. The Famedio is a big porch that in origin had to accommodate the dormitories of the pilgrims. Left incomplete, then it was transformed in a sort of “Temple of the Reputation”, destined to accommodate the tombs of the illustrious livornesi. Here rests Giovanni Fattori, while two tombstone remember Amedeo Modigliani and Pietro Mascagni, buried respectively in Paris and in the Cemetery of the Misericodia in Livorno.
