    The oratory is in the village of Montasico, not far from Marzabotto.

    The oratory was probably erected in 1116; it was built by Count Silvestro de Boatieri and during the Renaissance period it was transformed into a fortified private mansion. Today the building has just one floor, an internal courtyard and an imposing entrance surmounted by a turret. The coat of arms of the Volta family is visible on a fragment of architrave located on one side of the door.
