Blessed Maria Vittoria De Fornari Strata, the founder of the Order of the Most Holy Annunciation.

The Order of the Most Holy Annunciation[1] (Latin: Ordo SS. Annuntiationis), also known as Turchine Nuns or Blue Nuns, is a Roman Catholic religious order of contemplative nuns formed in honour of the mystery of the Incarnation of Christ at Genoa, in Italy, by Blessed Maria Vittoria De Fornari Strata.

Pope Clement VIII approved the religious order in August 5, 1604, placing it under the Rule of St. Augustine.

At the present, there are monasteries of this religious order in Italy, Portugal, Spain, France, the Philippines, Romania and Brazil.
