Bologna, Emilia-Romagna, Italy Part VI

Chiesa Parrocchiale di Santa Maria della Carità, Via San Felice, Bologna


Inscription, San Nicolò di San Felice, Via San Felice, Bologna

San Nicolò di San Felice is a deconsecrated Roman Catholic church located on via San Felice 41 in Bologna, region of Emilia Romagna, Italy. Bombardment during World War two caused sufficient damage to close the brick walled structure with a front portico.

A church at the site is documented since the 12th-century, when it was located outside the city walls.

Translation
“This cross, an extraordinary sign of human redemption, erected by the citizens of Bologna when the church was just being born in defense of the embraced faith, then very often ruined by the ravages of time and each time restored in its original place, Vespasiano Grimaldi, when it was Archbishop of Bologna Alfonso Paleotti, at the beginning of the last century, placed it in the middle of this street above the bridge, so that it could resist more firmly.
However, this bridge having been destroyed to widen the road, when Girolamo Grimaldi, cardinal of the Holy Roman Church with the title of Santa Balbina, Prospero Lambertini, cardinal of the Holy Roman Church with the title of Santa Croce in Gerusalemme, Bologna, prince of the Holy Roman Empire, took care that the same cross was affixed under this portico on the wall of this sacred building and blessed it with a solemn rite and graciously granted one hundred days of indulgence to all those who prayed devoutly in front of it and who formulated their vows to Almighty God for the salvation of the country.
Year 1732 “.

Porta San Felice, Piazza di Porta San Felice, Bologna

Porta San Felice was the westernmost gate or portal of the former outer medieval walls of the city of Bologna, Italy. The gate was erected in the 13th century, and rebuilt in 1334 with a machiocolated tower and drawbridge. It was restored in 1508, and again in 1805 when Napoleon visited the city. In 1840, the flanking walls were torn down. A barracks and tax house for collecting duties was in the past found astride the entrance.
