Chiesa di S.Maria della Misericordia (La Misericordiella)
Via Fuori Porta San Gennaro , 15 – Napoli

The church is part of an ancient complex, the former hospital of the Archconfraternity of Santa Maria della Misericordia, which stands right at the entrance to the Borgo dei Vergini.


Probably a fourteenth-century foundation, over the centuries it has been rebuilt and enlarged several times until the eighteenth-century intervention, with the refined vaccarian stuccoes that characterize the upper nave and the hypogean rooms, dedicated to the function of “Holy Land”. The SMMAVE association is carrying out with its voluntary work the recovery and enhancement of the Misericordia, long abandoned to degradation, so that this asset of remarkable historical, artistic and architectural interest can be fully used and become a center for research, the didactics and artistic production.
