Parish Church of the Annunciation

Ceneselli Chiesa Parrocchiale dell'Annunciazione

P.zza Marconi
45030 Ceneselli

An interesting work of Vincenzo Santini, enriched on the outside by four statues (the Saints Peter and Paul, the Madonna and the Archangel Gabriel) inserted in niches of the façade.
The harmonious interior, of central Greek cross plan in precious marble of the XX Century, hosts several works of art among which the following canvases: 

  • the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin (end of XVII Century) attributed to Giacomo Parolini together with the Apparition of  St. Anthony (early XVII Century);
  • the Ecstasy of St. Francis of Assisi, painted by Stefano Fegatelli (early XVII Century).

But the real masterpiece is the Veneratissima Madonna del Divin Parto, a precious polychrome sculpture of the late XV Century.
Several other canvases, sculptures, marbles and valuable furnishings complete the sacred building.
The bell tower, among the tallest of the entire Polesine (60 metres), stands elegantly decorated by a double stone balustrade in white stone of Vicenza.
