  18 March 2016

We were lucky to grow up with traditions that then as adults we carry in our care and it is so natural to share them with our children that sometimes you seem to feel scents and tastes like you going as a child.
Next to the Residence there is a small Church St. Joseph’s Church where among other things you can enjoy a glimpse of the stunning lake. The St. Joseph’s Oratory is dated end of 1600 and owes its construction to Charles Brentano Mezzegra. Preceded by a portico, the church has a structure with a single nave and has an altarpiece depicting the Madonna and Child with Saints Joseph and Charles probably of the school of Giulio Quaglio.
This small church is opened by our parish at March 19th feast of St. Joseph and the Father’s Day, and traditionally is celebrated the holy Mass followed by the enchantment of the baskets and to end the volunteers always serve the famous and delicious tortelli di San Giuseppe .
