It is a madonnina, or wayside shrine to the Virgin Mary, on a garage in the village of Pierle in Tuscany (central Italy).]

[image ALT: A path thru two steep rock faces some 10 meters tall. The rock face on the left has fallen over the path, and is precariously held in place by the other. A grilled niche in it includes a fresco, apparently of St. Joseph. It is an edicola, or wayside shrine, in the Via Cava S. Giuseppe, near Pitigliano, Tuscany (central Italy).]
