Ponte Nossa, Madonna delle Lacrime

The project


Madonna delle Lacrime Sanctuary in Ponte Nossa (Bergamo) is famous for a peculiar guest: an embalmed crocodile from the XVIth Century.

Regardless this curiosity, all you need is looking at some pictures of the Church to understand how its decorations are a sufficient reason to be fascinated.

The wooden ceiling, with its colours, is what caught our attention and inspired us for the realization of a liturgical set with tailored handwoven orphreys.

Gold, red and green will be the common feature for all the vestments.

The set
