Church of Saint Emily

Where
Contrada Sasso, 23023 Chiesa in Valmalenco

This small church was built at Giuseppe Sampietro's initiative, to welcome the clients and the personnel of the  prestigious Grand Hotel Malenco. In memory of his first wife -  Emilia - the church was dedicated to Saint Emilia, martyred on June 2nd 177 in Lyon, under Emperor Marcus Aurelius. 

The designer of the building and author of the paintings, carvings and decorations was the artist Erminio Dioli.

The central altarpiece (1931) portrays Saint Emily with the halo while holding a palm (symbol of victory) among clouds and cherubs.
In the tabernacle door, is carved a chalice and, on top of it, there is the holy bread with the monogram I.H.S. (Jesus Hominum Salvator).
The barrel vault ceiling and the walls are decorated with cherubs and garlands.
The small window above the entrance portrays Mary with her hands joined and the writing Ave Maria gratia plena.
