Posto tranquillo che concilia gli animi tormentati

A chi può interessare, Sto cercando il certificato di matrimonio di ZAIRA DELLA VALLE e TEOBALDO CERVINI sposati all'incirca nel 1878. Non so dove si siano sposati ma è nata Borghetto di Vara e lui a San ilario in Campo. Questo documento è l'ultimo di cui ho bisogno per ottenere la cittadinanza, motivo per cui è così importante trovarlo. Grazie in anticipo per la collaborazione. Saluti,

Wieskirche

The Pilgrimage Church of Wies (Wieskirche) is an oval rococo church, designed in the late 1740s by Dominikus Zimmermann. It is located in the foothills of the Alps in the municipality of Steingaden.

The sanctuary of Wies is a pilgrimage church extraordinarily well-preserved in the beautiful setting of an Alpine valley, and is a perfect masterpiece of Rococo art and creative genius, as well as an exceptional testimony to a civilization that has disappeared.

The hamlet of Wies, in 1738, is said to have been the setting of a miracle in which tears were seen on a simple wooden figure of Christ mounted on a column that was no longer venerated by the Premonstratensian monks of the Abbey. A wooden chapel constructed in the fields housed the miraculous statue for some time. However, pilgrims from Germany, Austria, Bohemia, and even Italy became so numerous that the Abbot of the Premonstratensians of Steingaden decided to construct a splendid sanctuary.
