Analytical text

The construction of the church began in 1614 by the monks of San Francesco di Paola order. The actual façade was rebuilt in 1829 on a project by Giuseppe Pani. The two statues in the niches had been sculpted in the first half of the XIX century by Graziani brothers from Faenza. The statues portray San Giacomo Apostolo and San Francesco di Paola. The inside has only one nave and three chapels per side. The four niches along the walls host the stucco statues of the Evangelists sculpted by Giuseppe Trentanove. In the second chapel from the right there are the group of statues portraying San Antonio and San Francesco Saverio and the oval by Felice Andrea Bondi painted with oil colours and depicting the miracle of san Francesco di Paola. On the main altar there is the XI century urn of San Ruffillo, first bishop of Forlimpopoli. On the front part of the sarcophagus there are three bas-relievs depicting: the blessing Christ, San Mercuriale and San Ruffillo; the sculptures on the back portray the Virgin in throne with her baby, S. Antonio with the pig and S. Giacomo the apostle with the shells on his breast.
