both for commercial aims and for personal and private ones
is a small church isolated in the country, and exactly in the Tremonti
district; it was built for the great devotion to Our Lady painted
on a slab of stone that it is venerated here with the name of S.
Maria of Tremonti.
Every first Sunday of July it is celebrated the feast-day, which
has the character of a devote excursion to the country.
||An ultra centenarian oak is used as tower bell and
on the occasion an old bell kept into the church is hung there. Some
big ovens are built in the open space, to cook specially meat, because
it is a tradition among the ordinary people, in order to have a bellyful.
IN 1999 the restoration works were finished and they
were overseen with love and devotion by Mons P. La Rosa and by the
inhabitants of the new houses in Tremonti besides the several believers.
From a current publication we learn:
Built about three centuries ago, the Madonna of Tremontií
Church has a particular meaning under the historical outline.
Even if the frescos of the vault are not very good,
as they appear today, the unknown painter didnít success to join
a great ability to the devotion, the image of Our Lady and the Child,
certainly painted by another painter is much better and it attracts
the sensitivity of the believers with its sweetness and it helps
them to pray the Mother of Jesus.

Recently, we can note a strong renewal, and no more
occasional but with a continuous and regular zeal in the aspect
of Rectorate, invigorates the devotion towards Our Lady that every
Sunday the believers admire, represented in the central fresco in
the sweet motherly aspect to suckle the Holy Child.
The new bell, melted for the celebration of the 2000
Jubilee, has stamped an inscription on the outside edge.
