Photographer's Note

Church and Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie in TernirnrnSince 1368 the blessed Paolo Trinci da Foligno had established a small monastery of the Observants on today's Colle dell'Oro. San Bernardino da Siena, put forward to the Municipality and to Pope Eugene IV the proposal to build a small church with a "narrow shelter for four or six Franciscans". In the session of 2 April 1441 the general council granted this faculty to the observers, who on 11 July 1441 obtained the bull from Pope Eugene IV, and subsequently also the consent of the diocesan bishop Ludovico Mazzancolli, to build the Convent of the Madonna dell ' Gold. The works were completed in 1458, however, as early as 1471, we realized the landslide of the land; the friars then asked to be able to build a new convent with a church on the other side of Terni, in the woods near the source already called Pan Perduto, perhaps in memory of a place of worship dedicated to the God of the woods. There was already a chapel dedicated to the Madonna delle Grazie, following some miraculous events that occurred at the source, it was then called Fonte delle Grazie. Thanks to San Bernardino and his fraternal friend Blessed Barnabas Manassei Paul II granted the place to be able to build a convent. The concession was confirmed on September 14th 1472 by Sixtus IV and on the 16th of the same month Barnaba Manassei laid the first stone.rnThe Convent had two cloisters and workshops on the ground floor. Upstairs there are two dormitories with twenty-eight rooms and a separate professorship for students. The Church and the convent were completed at the end of the 15th century.
