Energitismo Insight

The chapel of San Antonio is in the late Baroque style with a dome covered with colourful Florentine ceramic tiles and was once called "the rural chapel" because it was located outside the village. An inscription in Latin informs that the temple dates back to the seventeenth century by the will of "Giovanni Paolo Ginetti" who wanted to demonstrate his power. Inside you can admire beautiful flooring of Borromini design. In the external recess is placed the statue of San Antonio of Padua that was brought into the church with a spectacular and traditional procession. Ever since 1756, in fact, Cardinal Domenico Orsini had celebrated a cantata mass on the occasion of the festival of the Saint.
