CUNA DI SANTA ROSA
In the village of Soriano, along the road that leads to the castle, there is an open space, called “Cuna di Santa Rosa” (cradle), where a shrine commemorates the place of penance and prayer of Santa Rosa da Viterbo. According to tradition, the young Rosa, a witness of faith at the time of the difficult conflicts between Guelphs and Ghibellines, expelled in 1250, at the behest of the mayor, from the town of Viterbo, went into exile with her family first to Soriano, then to Vitorchiano .
On the place where the girl stayed, a plaque was placed surmounted by a niche with the statue of the Saint. The plaque reads: “In this place stood the house where the teenager Santa Rosa stayed – MCCL – This newsstand was set up on the initiative of the Rione Rocca with the active collaboration of Francesco Sbarra Arciprete and Agostino Papini. 12.10.1974 “. A little further downstream, along Via Santa Rosa, incorporated into a wall that delimits the road, is a large boulder (recently protected by a glass), in which a small natural ravine opens up. Tradition has it that, during her stay in Soriano, her Saint retired in prayer and penance precisely in this ravine. On the site is a plaque with the words: “IN THIS SITE OF THE OLD BORGO DI SORIANO TRAGICALLY STRIKED BY THE BOMBARDING OF THE V.VI.MCMXLIV AND SUBSEQUENTLY REBUILT IT IS REPLACED IN THE LIGHT TODAY THE ROCKY STONE OF SANTA ROSA TRADITIONALLY RECRUITED OR VIRGINAL CORDINARY VITERBESE WAS GATHERED IN PRAYER NEAR THE HOUSE WHICH NO MORE EXISTED THAN DECEMBER MCCL HOSED IT FOR INTERESTING THE PRO-LOCO AND THE MUNICIPALITY DECEMBER, AD MM. “.
