Painting from the early 19th century but with an accent in the eighteenth century style which portrays the Madonna della Grazie in the act of breastfeeding the Child. At his feet on the left San Gennaro in the bishop's vestments and on the right San Filippo Neri in cassock and alb. It is cataloged by Cultural Heritage Inv # 1500047470. It originally adorned the patronal chapel of the Mazzocca family in the "Chiaio" area. When the chapel was demolished in the mid-20th century, the painting was placed in the church of the Immaculate Conception and then moved to the church of the Body of Christ during the restoration work on the church of the Immaculate Conception in the 1980s. Abandoned in the garden of the parish church after the death of the parish priest Don Salvatore Pierro was ready to be thrown away. It was recognized by chance at the beginning of the 20th century by one of the members of the Mazzocca family while she was busy cleaning the church and sacristy. Recovered and restored at the expense of the same family, it was placed on the main altar of the Church of the Immaculate Conception in 2022.
