Madonna della Neve (Our Lady of the Snows)


The modern shrine of the Blessed Mary of the Snow stands on the site where according to tradition in the late sixth century she had appeared to some farmers as a sweet female figure holding a baby. On her appearance, the oxen knelt. The figure, suspended in the air, was bathed in bright light and was accompanied by angels and archangels who sang sweet music. It was the Madonna. Since then devotion to the apparitions have continued.

It is said that Charles VIII, after having conquered the castle of Apex, attracted by the fame of the Virgin Mary venerated in the church of Morroni, wanted to visit the spot to see the beauty and the miraculous virtues.

There he entered the church with a haughty frown followed by his armed warriors. It was the end of the spring of 1492. It was very hot.

Suddenly, however, while Charles VIII stood irreverent in church, the sky was covered with dark clouds, and it began to snow with great intensity. In a flash the fields and streets were covered with snow and mountains of Charles VIII was unable to return to the castle.

He remained a prisoner in the Church with all his entourage for more than forty days and only when he repented of his evil intentions of the snow disappeared and reappeared throughout the summer. Since then, Our Lady of Morroni was awarded the title of Our Lady of the Snows."
