Pratolino is a suggestive place at the foot of Montecuccolo that is famous above all for the homonymous oratory dedicated to a miraculous image of the Lady originally contained in a " majesty " or " pillar " existing in the position of the present oratory. The miraculous fact named by the canonical Don Attilio Pellesi had for protagonist a woman, Zia Lippa dei Benedetti from Pratolino, died very old in 1601, that during one of the frequent standstills praying in front of the pillar " saw that the Lady was crying ". The fact had great resonance and soon people determined to build on the spot a sanctuary that was always object of great popular devotion for the miraculous facts and the graces that they could intercede. Even after the elevation, in 1672, of the church of Montecuccolo as parish, in whose territory Pratolino reenters, Renno wanted to maintain the jurisdiction on the oratory that still today depends from the ancient rural church.
