Activities and events
At present the Compagnia Laicale di San Niccolò – in accordance with its Statute – acts following the principles of Christianity and the rules of Catholic religion. According to the traditional devotion to the Saint, San Niccolò, Bishop of Mira, a Holy Mass in his honor is celebrated every year on the 6th December, the day dedicated to him; other celebrations are held on demand of the brothers.
The main activity of the Compagnia is to take care and preserve its heritage, consisting of the Church of San Niccolò and its works of art and faith; the church is regularly open to visitors at fixed times and held by a highly qualified staff who has an agreement with the Compagnia and can provide you with interesting information about the church, the Compagnia Laicale, Cortona and the Poggio quarter where the property is situated.
The Local Administration and other public and private authorities have concluded agreements to house some cultural events in the church, on the churchyard and in the upper garden, in a plain, elegant and welcoming atmosphere; in particular, concerts and recitals are even more evocative in such a beautiful venue.
Finally, the Church houses even more often wedding ceremonies and guests are received and welcomed in large outdoor spaces.
In any case activities and events are regulated by precise rules, which were approved by the Magistrato della Compagnia Laicale and can be known simply by asking the internal staff or the people in charge of the facility management.
