In 1554 the Compagnia del Crocifisso built the Church of San Rocco, connected to the Oratorio decorated with frescoes by the Alberti brothers: Alessandro, Cherubino and Giovanni. Inside there is a stone reproduction of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem. The back wall is covered by a large wooden altar that frames a masterpiece of Romanesque sculpture: La Pietà. Below there is another wooden sculpture dating back to 1200, which depicts the deposed Christ. San Rocco today is the seat of the Confraternity of Mercy of Sansepolcro.
