The iconography shows Sant'Emidio supporting a crumbling wall. In Ascoli there is in the Cathedral a fine silver statue, and his festive day is 5 August. In Abruzzo there is a church to Sant'Emidio in Caprafico (Teramo), built in 1324 but reconstructed in 1450. There are altars to this saint in Corropoli, Civitella del Tronto, Torricella Sicura, Morro d'Oro, Mosciano, Collevecchio and Canzano. After the 1703 earthquake, the cult greatly flourished in the Valle del Sagittario, southern Abruzzo, and in the area of the Majella.
