The frequent visitor to my site has heard me say it often: what I show you — here, a glimpse of 9 edicole — is the merest sampler of what there is to be seen in this particular pocket of Italy. And so it is here: if you are interested in these little wayside shrines in the territory of Trevi, 157 of them in that comune alone have been inventoried, photographed, documented, and commented by the good people at the Edicole Sacre project linked in the navigation bar below.
