I usually find these “madonelle,” small shrines to the Virgin Mary on the side of buildings, in Trastevere. But I saw this one in the Monti neighborhood the other day, and the best part?
Of course I was bummed to see that it wasn’t lit up, and I am so curious to know if it does go on at night… Maybe it flashes too. That would be the best.
Here is a link to more “little Madonnas” if you’re so inclined.
