REFINED AND MAJESTIC, A NEVERENDING WONDER FOR YOUR EYES AND SPIRIT
Everything in the Basilica is a "miracle", from its origin, to its beauty, to the deep bond of faith that binds it to the city. Since its sacrato, made of mosaic sea stones and the Baroque-Renaissance façade, the Basilica, fruit of the Pietresi's devotion to the Saint who miraculously freed them from the scourge of the plague, promises to be a treasure chest of faith and art that you never stop discovering. Every corner of the monumental work of architects Giovan Battista Montaldo and Gaetano Cantoni is a continuous revelation. The cultural tour will guide you to discover the treasures that can be found inside in the grandeur of the single Roman-style nave, in the immense pavilion vault and in the walls and chapels covered with decorations, sculptures, medallions and paintings, both figurative and decorative. they were made "in fresco" and not "in tempera" so the colors remain indelible to this day. Among the figurative frescoes, the work of the Genoese painter Luigi Sacco, one in particular amazes, the medallion of the vault, called “the paradise”, which in its 190 square meters, contains only 33 characters. Among the wonderful works, in the sacristy, the two paintings by Luca Cambiaso and other paintings of the seventeenth-century Genoese school, with the two historical Pietresi paintings: the liberation from the plague (1525) and the victory of Genoa and Pietra against the Savoy and Loanesi (1625).[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
