Chiesa della Santissima Annunziata

The church, today the result of a reconstruction in twentieth century, was built between 1648 and 1656 by the project of Charles Morello on behalf of the Brotherhood of the Holy Annunciation along Via Po, along  the new extension of the city.




At the end of the nineteenth century, the building wasn't in good condition and was inadequate to the needs of the community served by the brotherhood, so in 1913 it was decided to demolish and rebuild. The project by Ing. Giuseppe Gallo, began in 1919, finally completed in 1934.
