Upon exiting the “Chiesa di San Giacomo Maggiore” on the “Via Zamboni”, we walk along its side porch until we find a small entrance through the back of the church. There we stopped to admire the “Oratorio di Santa Cecilia” and its beautiful frescoes. In total, there are ten panels of frescoes that cover the walls to the right and left of the entrance to the oratory and show episodes of the life of “Santa Cecilia” and her husband “Valeriano”.
The oratories are places destined for divine worship and sacred functions. The small “Oratorio di Santa Cecilia” is an integral part of the Convent of “San Giacomo Maggiore” in Bologna.
