The church Pio Suffragio, dates back to 1620. Originally it was an oratory dedicated Saint Joseph.
Inside it has three naves and preserves several baroque stuccos and drawings carried out by the local artist Cesare Ruina during a restoration made in 1874-76.
Worth of mention are also four marvellous ovals dedicated to the evangelists by Ignazio Stern (1680-1748), as well as two canvas depicting the death of S. Anna and S. Giuseppe, while the painting “Our Lady of the snow with Saint Joseph, Saint Michael and praying souls” is by Benedetto Dal Buono (1711-1775).
There are also two statues: one is a Saint Joseph made by the workshop Graziani in Faenza (1874), and the other one is the Immaculate made by Bartolomeo Schedoni from Modena in 1614.
