Santuario della Madonnetta

The organ of the Sanctuary of Madonnetta was originally built by Lorenzo Roccatagliata in 1733 and rebuilt in 1844 by the varesino Carlo Giuliani, residing in Genova. During this intervention a second manuale was added, however, recovering much of the material of the original instrument, thus opening up the possibility to play of more recent repertoire, which required a greater number of stops.

It has two keyboards of 52 keys with short octave and range of C1-G5 with division between Bassi and Soprani E3-F3. The lectern shaped pedalboard has 17 pedals plus one for Timballone and is constantly linked to the keyboard. The registers are driven by levers placed in columns to the left and right of the keyboard, according to the following setting:
