Crowdfunding to restore San Luca porticoes!

Un passo per San Luca is a crowfunding project to collect money to restore the longest portico that lead up to the Sanctuary of the Madonna of San Luca.

Bologna - Portico di San Luca

A monumental roofed arcade (Portico di San Luca) consisting of 666 arches, which was built in 1674-1793. It was meant to protect the icon as it was paraded up the hill. A yearly procession from the Cathedral of San Pietro in the centre of Bologna to the Sanctuary goes along this path. Originally the arches held icons or chapels erected by the patron family.
