Madonna del Dosso

Gag.3

Considered a true gem in the town of Gaggiano, this place of worship is situated among the fields of the farms Cascina Baitana and Cascina Cantalupo on the hilltop of the Dosso. Inside, the roof is wooden and at the apex there is a little cement cross. A painting above the altar is of the Annunciation, probably an imitation of an older painting that was there before it. There is also an extremely recent fresco (1987) with an image that is popular in the tradition of the Dosso area: the Madonna nursing the baby, but a Madonna wrapped in a black cloak instead of the usual pinks and blues of religious imagery.
