Description
This important hamlet stretches over the eastern most spurs of Mt. Penna, not far from the riverbed of the Dolo torrent.
The San Lorenzo church was mentioned in 1302 as belonging to the Toano parish.
the hamlet is made up of 2 separate building centers having undifferentiated plans.
The urban nucleus was subject to general construction operations which have altered the original architectural landscape.
You can still see construction features attributable to different historical periods.
On the façade of a completely restored building there's an ashlar bearing the year "1617".
An adjacent building is characterized by a quadrangular plan with four weathered roof and raised portal of 19th century style.
In the northern part of the hamlet there's a noticeable second construction of the 19th century which has a portal of a well with rounded arch.
In the vicinity there's another portal dated "1863".
The hamlet of Morsiano is characterized by numerous aedicula and majesties of different types and periods of construction.
A 19th century aedicula is particularly interesting and can be found on the eastern edge of the hamlet, two cylindrical mullions define the entrance supporting a barrel arch.
