Witness to Popular Religiousness
Along the paths of the Sinio territory, in the streets or in the village, you can observe characteristic expressions of popular religious devotion.
For the most part, this cultural patrimony was restored in the 1990s by the Town Hall of Sinio or by its inhabitants.
An ancient noble oratory, the country sacellum or shrine, the “piloni” (votive pillars), the votive cross, and three sacred aediculae or niches distinguish the territory in particularly scenic locations, in homes, or on crossroads.
These constitute the explicit expressions of devotion to Mary, of “ex voto” (votive offerings), of collective or family invocations for the protection of individuals, as well as for crops.
Several were destinations for propitiatory processions (rogation days), others are still references for reciting the first-crop rosaries.
