French term or phrase: sanctuaire de la madone de Pompéi
My translation mentions the number of pilgrims who visit "le sanctuaire de la madone de Pompéi" and i am unsure whether to translate this as "the sanctuary of the Madonna of Pompeii" or as "the Sanctuary of Madonna di Pompei". I have come across both on the internet but was wondering what the norm is in such situations.

Thank you for any advice.
