“Collegiata di San Michele Arcangelo”

In the centre of Brisighella one finds the Collegiata di San Michele Arcangelo, designed by the Florentine architect Gherardo Silvani and finished in 1697. At the entrance there is big bronze door of the sculptor Angelo Biancini. Here one venerates the Madonna delle Grazie in a painting from 1410 of Mingarelli. Among the other works of value are a baptismal stoup with the Malatesta coat of arms; two canvases of the Bolognese artist Bertuzzi, depicting San Giorgio and Santa Rosa da Lima, and two wood statues of 1750 of the Toselli brothers Nicola and Ottaviano.The present facade, designed by the architect Boschi of Faenza, was entirely reconstructed after the grave damage of he 1781 earthquake.
