DuomoWalking on the elegant Corso Italia until the Largo Arcivescovado, the Duomo (cathedral) opens up, which has beeen rearranged several times during the centuries. In Romanesque style, it dates back to the fifteenth century. From the same period dates the side portal (1474), in Renaissance style.
The church, among the other works of art, like paintings by artists of the eighteenth century Neapolitan School, keeps the baptistery where Torquato Tasso was christened, restored in 1933. On the ceiling it is possible to admire the paintings by Oronzo Malinconico and Giacomo del Po. The marble archiepiscopal throne dates back to the year 1573. The wooden inlaid choir is a work by craftsmen from Sorrento dating back to the beginning of the twentieth century, to which more recently have been added the 14 inlaid Stations of the Cross by Giovanni Patirzo, the lectern by Giuseppe Centro and Mario d’Alesio and, finally, the tambours of the entrance door by Giuseppe Rocco after a drawing by Vincenzo Stinga.
