  • Back to Catania for the presentation of my latest book to the Monastore of the Benedictine monastery, well run by Cultural Workshops, don't lose the opportunity to visit the Church of San Benedetto in the beautiful via dei Crociferi dotted with other churches. The visit is possible because, once again, to Cultural Workshops. An audio guide very well done encourages a visit. You cross a compartment where you can see the remains of a Roman domus, you climb the stairs, you enter the parlour, in the room from which the nuns could attend religious ceremonies, and finally, after the staircase with the angels, in the beautiful church, with the extraordinary frescoes of Tuccari, with scenes of the life, death and Ascension to heaven of Saint Benedict , a set of colors, light, images, Kingdom of the late Sicilian baroque. An incredible place not to be missed.

  • Try to visit the San Benedetto Church during a Sunday service. It doesn't matter if you're Catholic or atheist, pii or unrepentant sinners: you will find joy in San Francisco! That's the beauty of the atmosphere created by nuns who maintain the Baroque church as the parlor of the House and at the same time the living every day with the naturalness that only the real people are noble and forward. In fact, try it!

  • Certainly the most beautiful church of Via Crociferi and, if we consider the high expression of Baroque architecture is recognized in all the way, much to enrol you in the Unesco-protected world heritage site and there are no words to describe the artistic richness.
