When the king of Spain and of the two Sicilies Filippo IV in 1643, issued an edict to order that every Municipality of the reign should elect the Madonna as Divine Protectress, the inhabitants of Terravecchia chose The Virgin of the Snow. Since then a long parochial squabble started between the believers of the two patron saints; the squabble ended only in 1850 when a Ministerial Decree elected the two saints "Joint Patrons".
