The church of the Miracoli was built to house a miraculous image of the Virgin Mary owned by Angelo Amadi; this tradition dates back to 1408, and by 1477 alms and gifts were being donated. This led to the building of the church in 1481. Lorenzetti describes a depiction of the Virgin between two saints, not a Madonna and Child, which is pictured here. Chorus Venice, which administers the site, is also unclear as to whether this is the actual altarpiece owned by Amadi.
