VAULTS OR CEILINGS
The ceiling of the porch (recently restored) is flat, like that of the nave. The ceiling of the apse area consists of a barrel vault.
External face: has a lack of plaster at times, reveals the construction masonry made by stones and bricks bound with mortar. Internal facing: painted plaster.
The porch has a paving of concrete blocks placed dry. The interior of the oratory has a floor tile. The oratory is mentioned for the first time on the occasion of the pastoral visit of Bishop Peyretti in 1787. The building originally was much smaller then underwent various transformations, whose signs are still evident. At the Oratory, they used to celebrate in April, the anniversary of St. George and on the 5th of August the feast of Our Lady. The chapel dedicated to Our Lady of the Snows, alludes to the particularly sunny position, upon which rests the building and where the snow melts much earlier than in any other place around.
