A story to be explored ...

... The Mother of God, always loved and always with a special place of honour in the heart of the people of Bologna and in the city of Bologna, is venerated with the title of Blessed Virgin of San Luca. In fact, devotion to the Virgin Mother of God was widespread here before the year 1000. The arrival of the icon, apparently carried by a pious pilgrim, was entrusted by the city elders to some nuns from a convent on Colle della Guardia which had been recently built. It was the end of the XII century. Truth or legend? In any case, the fact is that the image of the Madonna of San Luca is one of those "odigitrie" or icons that arrived in the aftermath of closer contacts between East and West.

VISIT TO THE BASILICA

The visit to the Sanctuary to honour the Mother of God in the image of the Madonna of San Luca is always cause for learning about the artistic creations that adorn the entire Basilica.

After stopping in front of the Venerated Image, leaving by the corridor on the north side, you can stop and admire the exhibition that the Mexican Missionary Sisters of Jesus Host set up for a Marian twinning with their land, documenting the extraordinary event of the appearance of the Virgin of Guadalupe. Below you will find the video prepared by the nuns, with the musical inserts that inspired the position of stars, as if arranged on a score, of the Virgin's cloak.
