  • In 1603 in Casticciano, along the road that connected Bertinoro to Meldola, by the will of Gaspare Sirri known as “Il Villa”, a small cell was restored and inside it was placed a painting by Mastro Bentivoglio di Bertinoro depicting the Madonna. According to the chronicles of the time, the news spread quite quickly that by praying this image graces were obtained.On 2 July 1612, the day of the Feast of the Visitation, Donna Agnese, daughter of Giovanni Maria delle Tombe di Meldola, accompanied by her brother, went to the cell in order to ask for the grace to be able to regain sight from the eye that had become blind due to a disease. According to the documents of the time, following this prayer Donna Agnese regained her sight. The fact, examined by the Church, was recognized as a miracle. Consequently, not far from the place where the cell originally stood, it was decided to erect a church in honor of the miraculous image.The church, built in just 7 years, was inaugurated by the bishop on 3 August 1613 and inside was placed the painting of the Madonna delle Grazie, carried with a solemn procession from the Cathedral of Bertinoro, where it had been temporarily placed.The church was consecrated as a sanctuary on 4 August 1709 by the Bishop of the diocese of Bertinoro, Mons. Missiroli.(Source: visitbertinoro.it/it/poi/santuario-di-casticciano/)
