The Church of San Giuseppe: “The Marriage of the Virgin” by Francesco Nasini

Situated on Corso Nasini, the 17th century Church of San Giuseppe is the seat of the Confraternity of the Misericordia. Its façade is dominated by a triangular tympanum and an architraved portal, and it has a cross vaulted ceiling. The high altar, which is in stucco and Baroque in style, houses The Marriage of the Virgin, a canvas by Francesco Nasini, signed and dated 1664. The painting depicts the Madonna in a white flounced dress crowned by the light that descends from above receiving a ring from Joseph under the eye of Saint Anne and a choir of angels.
