  • Battuti's chapel is located inside a building adjacent to the Church of Santa Maria della Vita, but few people seem to turn their feet. If I have time, I think i should take a look. However, the entrance fee is an extra charge. If you see a group of statues named "Death to Christ (Compianto sul Cristo Morto)" on the right at the main altar of the Church of Santa Maria della Vita, you can walk through the aisle on the left side of the altar. After leaving the church, go to Piazza Maggiore to the right on the old Kravature Street, and after passing the shop, you can go through the narrow passage with the gate of the iron fence to the right. Battuti's chapel is the entrance to the stairs leading to the second floor, and when you enter the hall, it becomes a rectangular room, and the short side of the entrance is a beautiful Baroque altar, and the altar depicts a saint and a virgin and a child. On the back side of the opposite is a group of 14 terracotta statues. In addition, st. Procolo and St. Petronio are located on the long side, and the statues of St. Francesco and St. Domenico are located in a position relative to the wall. It's a solemn, beautiful and glittering chapel, but it's easy to get a nose with a lot of gold decorations, and personally, I feel that the chapel is more suitable for prayer, as if only frescoes are covered all over the surface.

  • From the church of St. Mary of Life, in addition to the aptly celebrated Lament on the Dead Christ, there is a small jewel ignored by most: the oratory of the Baptists. The setting is lavishly decorated with paintings and golds with, at both extremes, a beautiful baroque altar and an engaging group of fourteen terracotta statues representing the Transit of Our Lady. Admission is charged; we paid 10 euros per person as it included a visit to a beautiful and at the same time disturbing exhibition with plastic as a theme, curated by National Geographic (open until 22/9/2019).
