http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chiesa_della_Compagnia_del_Corpus_Domini_(Seggiano) La chiesa della Compagnia del Corpus Domini è un edificio sacro situato a Seggiano. Dedicata anche a San Bernardino, risale al XVIII secolo, e fu restaurata nel 1869. Presenta una facciata in pietra affiancata dal campanile; il portale architravato e completato da un timpano spezzato immette in un ambiente a pianta rettangolare, coperto a capriate ed ornato da tre altari settecenteschi in stucco. In una nicchia della parete di destra si trova un'urna-reliquiario in cui si conservano alcuni oggetti appartenuti a San Bernardino, già nel Convento del Colombaio. Le statue lignee di "San Francesco di Paola" e della "Madonna addolorata" (1712) provengono dalla soppressa confraternita di Santa Caterina da Siena. Nel 1980 vi furono temporaneamente ospitate le spoglie di San Bernardino in occasione del sesto centenario della nascita.

This is an overview of Tuscany

The Tuscany, one of the most beautiful Italian regions, is known throughout the world for its Landscapes and for the Works of Art that it houses (It is the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance). Six localities have been designated World Heritage Sites: the Historical Center of Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and Pienza, the Square of the Cathedral of Pisa with the Leaning Tower and the Val d'Orcia. It is in the central Italy and borders with Emilia Romagna (north), Marche and Umbria (east) and Lazio (South). The West coast is bathed from the Ligurian and Tyrrhenian Sea; here we can find the islands of the Tuscan archipelago including the island of Elba.
