Oratory of St. Anna

The Oratory was designed by the Florentine architect Aurelio Norchi after the completion of the new Piave road, which started in 1926 and end two years later.

It borders the garden of the Piccolo Educatorio of St. Anna, which was founded in 1891 by Don Silvio Ceccatelli to give shelter to abandoned girls and orphans and today hosts a community of Salesians.

The building, both outside and inside, has a Neo-Medieval-Gothic style.

The façade has sturdy white pilasters that stand out against the darker plaster; on thin strips of white marble are engraved the names of people Fallen during the war to whom the church is dedicated.

The pointed portal with an azure and white majolica, in which is depicted Christ in the Tomb, finds a match with a bigger ogival arch at the top and on the center of the façade; it encloses a circular eye window.

The sides of the façade are crowned with a horizontal frame, decorated by little pointed arches.

The interior has a ceiling made by wooden trusses, while the sidewalls are adorned with the emblems of benefactors and altars. The presbytery is characterized by a tripartite opening with a pointed arch that recurs in the glass window located in the back wall, to recall the Gothic exterior.
