Casa Giannini

This is the house where St Gemma spent the last four years of her life. Visit the Crucifix which lovingly embraced St Gemma. See where she sat when she ate with the family.  Visit the well in the garden which she threw herself into to avoid temptation.

St Gemma threw herself into this well to overcome a temptation. It was during winter and the water was freezing. She was saved by an invisible hand.
