An unexpected fresco in the middle of nowhere
May 2017 • Couples
Following the ancient Roman road of Bana you come upon a very unexpected sight: a fresco of a Madonna and Child painted in 1450 on the outside wall of a building that used to shelter people struck by the plague. The building is privately owned, and the fresco is exposed to the elements, so much so that it's fading and the right side of it is now almost invisible. Still worth a stop, if you are walking or cycling in the vicinity.

On 1450, following an outbreak of leprosy occurred in jurisdictions of Rapallo and Recco, Giacomo d'Aste, a wealthy Rapallo citizen, donated to the community a plot of land located in the village of Bana, between the villages of San Massimo and Santa Maria del Campo, where it was built the building destined to house the local sick.
The management of the hospital, dedicated to San Lazzaro di Betania, and for this reason called "Lazaretto", was entrusted to the Protectors of the Pammatone Hospital of Genoa, according to the order of Pope Sixtus IV in a bubble of 1471. The building received four years after the plague victims (among them also the son of Giacomo d’Aste) who fell ill in the epidemic that in 1475 lashed Genoa and the Rivieras.

In 1505 the Lazaretto, which was in poor condition, was the subject of a first restoration;
and also in 1582, Monsignor Francesco Bossi, apostolic visitor and bishop of Novara, had to complain about the poor state of the building, asking managers of Pammatone to remedy it. But they considered excessive the cost on renovations and nothing was done about it.

The fifteenth-century painting that appears on the outer wall of the building represents, as well as the Madonna and Child, the thaumaturge Saints Lazzaro, Giacomo and Biagio (Lazarus, James and Biagio).
