San Michele Arcangelo is the parish church in the town of Verghereto, in the province of Forlì-Cesena, region of Emilia Romagna, Italy.

History

A church of this name was originally attached to a rural Camaldolese monastery. When this collapsed, the church was moved to an equally ancient small Oratorio di Sant'Antonio, outside of the city walls. By 1865, a new church was commissioned and in 1884, construction began of the present church on Via Casentinese, inside the city center. Restructured after earthquakes in 1918-1919, the second World War nearly razed the structure. Again rebuilt using elements from prior structures, including a bell, dated 1404. It formerly contained an 18th-century canvas depicting Miracle by a Franciscan Saint now kept in the Museo diocesano di Arte Sacra in Sarsina.
