Santa Maria della Spina is a small Gothic church in the Italian city of Pisa. The church, erected in 1230, was originally known as Santa Maria di Pontenovo: the new name of Spina ("thorn") derives from the presence of a thorn allegedly part of the crown dressed by Christ on the Cross, brought here in 1333. In 1871 the church was dismantled and rebuilt on a higher level due to dangerous infiltration of water from the Arno river: the church was slightly altered in the process, however.

    Gracias Pilar. La iglesia fue objeto de numerosas restauraciones debido al hundimiento del terreno y la proximidad del río Arno, en cuyas orillas se construyó. Finalmente, después de la unificación de Italia, un comité formado por miembros de la Academia de Bellas Artes decidió desmantelarla y reconstruirla en terreno más estable y seguro. La obra, dirigida por el arquitecto Vincenzo Micheli, se inició en 1871 y terminó en 1875. En esta operación, el templo se trasladó unos metros hacia el este, y hacia arriba.

  • Originally, AVE-MARIA NO MORRO (AVE-MARIA AT A FAVELA) a very touching Brazilian song, telling of the humble life of the poor (who live on hills = favelas, in Rio in this case) but even though, happy because the favela is on top of hills, so they´re quite close to sky... (=heaven).
