SS Sacramento Church

Portoferraio

Dedicated to Maria SS. Assunta, the church dates from 1568 and was built with a generous gift from the brothers of the fraternity, in particular cap. Michelangelo De Rossi who donated the land. From 1551 to 1568 the brothers met in a small oratory behind the parish church.

The Fraternity celebrates: Easter Thursday; the “Santissimo Crocifisso” festival on Pentecost Monday (every five years it is a solemn festival); the Assumption festival on 15th August.

A curiosity: The hangings from Napoleon’s bed are today used for the bishops pulpit.

Among the works of art to note: the main altar in marble; a painting of the “Assunta with Saint Tommaso D’Aquino” glorifying her, screens and furnishings from the 16th century; a modern bronze statue of Saint Barbara; a gold cup of the 19th century and missal with silver lettering from 1900.

On the left of the entrance door there is an artistic votive lamp made from the bronze of Austrian-German cannons. French works of art are found in the votive chapel attached to the church and dedicated to all the Elbans who fell during the first world war. The lamp was designed by the architect Crott

Also of value are the three lunettes painted by the Elban painter Prof. Giusebbe Mazzei, a pupil of Barabino.

Getting there: on foot through the historic centre of Portoferraio.
