Santa Maria della Misericordia, Bologna: 1 reviews and 3 photos
Originally the Romanesque styled church of Santa Maria della Misericordia belonged to the order of sisters Cistercites, but then was given to the Benedictine order of Olivetani. In 1431 the church was reconstructed to its present appearance, while the fine portico was added at the end of the 15th century. Later on the church was altered and enlarged in both late-Gothic and Renaissance style by the Agostinian order called Osservanti.
The facade is in both late-Gothic and Renaissance style dominated by the portico. The two windows were designed by Francesco Francia.
There are some fine works of art on display in the interiors of the church; by Gaetano Gandolfi, Matteo Cossich, Giuseppe Maria Crespi and Vincenzo Spisanelli.
