Parish church built in the stylistic lines of the late Baroque period
Sep 2018
The church of Nostra Signora delle Grazie is the parish church of Sanluri. It was built around 1776 and stands on the remains of a medieval church, dating back to the sixteenth century. Remains of the lower part of the bell tower can still be seen, and were incorporated in the restructuring. Due to the size of the church, it is assumed that the consecrated building was built for a bishop, making it a cathedral, but the church never had one. In 1776 the architect Carlo Maino was commissioned for the expansion of the church and the renovation of the old, which became the left side aisle of the church today. The interior of the church is characterized by a longitudinal plan divided by three naves and a transept. The two chapels at the headboards are dedicated to Sant'Antonio da Padova and to San Sebastiano. Looking up at the intersection of the arms, one can see the dome supported by a polygonal drum. The façade presents a horizontal partition in different orders defined through jutting stringcourses. The vertical division occurs through the use of pairs of semi-pilasters and ionic capitals. Placed at the two ends of the façade, at the sides of the portal neoclassical and the windowed opening in the middle part of the façade, they define the internal subdivision into three naves. The lower part of the facade is dominated by four pairs of pilasters with Ionic capitals and decorations that recall the Piedmontese style. The large central portal, as well as the tympanum and the wings with the underlying columns, also stand out. The two side doors with the precious moldings that frame them and the niches above them deserve their attention. After the collapse which took place on December 31st 1904, the facade was rebuilt according to the draft of the engineer and architect Enrico Pani. The Square based bell tower, which is located on the left side of the church, is set in a slightly backward position compared to the prospect line. It has a square plan and two different styles. The old part, with Catalan Gothic lines, shows ogival openings with hanging arches; the upper late baroque part presents an octagonal dome. Decorative elements include marble carvings, including altars. Examples are the 1789 balustrade and the columns supporting the canopy of the high altar dating back to 1786. Other things to note are the Altar of Sant'Anna, a polyptych of the late fifteenth century made with tempera, and the ceilings.
