In the steps of the painter Luciano Ricchetti

In the steps of Ricchetti

Follow this itinerary with us and you will discover interesting churches and beautiful countryside along the Nure valley.

Starting in the plain, our first stop is Podenzano, with the church of San Germano, and we then continue along the Provincial road SP 654. Immediately after Grazzano Visconti we turn right towards Niviano and then take the first left to Veano.
From these first hills we go left towards Ponte Dell'Olio and, a few kilometres further on, Bettola, where the parish church dedicated to the Blessed Virgin of the Quercia contains many works by Ricchetti.
  • Construction of the Shrine of the Blessed Virgin of the Quercia, in the imposing piazza Colombo, was completed in 1884 in celebration of the Marian apparition of 1496.
  • The church of San Vincenzo de Paoli belongs to the Collegio Alberoni. Inside are fine frescoes painted by Luciano Ricchetti in 1948.
  • A painter and sculptor from Piacenza, he worked in the first half of the 20th century. His works can be admired in Piacenza and in the province. In the Nure valley they are found in the churches of San Giorgio, Podenzano, Veano and Bettola.
