  • A beautiful church, rich in history, its exterior, imposing its octagonal tower, on a stone quadrangular. The Interior was restored in 2014-2015, in addition to the intervention, on times and walls, even the flooring, returning to the basilica, its glory, always within noteworthy, two works of the postwar period, the altar of our Lady of the missing and the Source Baptismal font. ..

  • I revisited today with my wife after a long time, for a Conference that was held in its interior. Since the previous review (it's been more than seven years), while the exterior is unchanged, with its beautiful bell tower that soars (who was the first in Italy to have a public clock) and the singularity of the Miss of the façade, incorporated into the side of the building Real, the Interior has been completely restored at the Expo 2015. Now the beautiful neoclassical Interior shows all its beauty and the fresco attributed to Giotto's pupils and, perhaps, put us even the master himself. Now no longer allowed, except for occasions like this one today, the entrance from via; the church became part of the route of the monasteries and is accessed with the museum ticket.
