Save the SanRocco Statue in Patrica

Bound by blood, connected by our roots, inspired by our heritage for the preservation of San Rocco.





Bound by blood....

We are connected through our Italian ancestry, our heritage and our love of Patrica, Italy, the town of our family roots.

For generations we have come together to honor the tradition of the San Rocco Festa, both here and abroad.

Many of us have been blessed and privileged to have made the pilgrimage to Patrica to venerate and
celebrate San Rocco.

The statue of San Rocco in Patrica dates back to the 1700’s.  At this time, restoration is necessary due to the statue’s present state of deterioration.
This restoration is a very delicate process that requires commissioned experts in the field of restoration and preservation. Specific to cleaning and painting of the statue, structural repairs are needed as the statue is crumbling and breaking.The hands and fingers are cracked and broken.  The silver foil of the gloves didn't permit the wood underneath to breath, causing the wood to deteriorate.
The estimated cost for restoration is approximately $23,000 US dollars (€19,000).

Our fellow Patricani are asking for help to preserve the statue for future generations. The restoration will grant visitors to Patrica an opportunity to view this holy treasure.

All donors names will be written in the Book of San Rocco Benefactors
in Patrica, Italy.
