  • the Church has a rectangular plan and a gable roof. The masonry structure is completely plastered, both outside and inside. The façade is very simple, characterized by a carved stone Portal; over a window pops up splayed without frame. The right side is free, while the left are the L-shaped steeple with cell in exposed brick, and a multi-storey building which houses the sacristy and a restaurant. The Church internally has Baroque style and is sumptuously decorated with stucco mouldings, volutes and heads. A party of twin columns on high pedestal supporting round arches; above the composite capital rests an entablature to smooth frieze that runs along the inside perimeter. The House consists of three bays arched subsequent small quadrangular edges; the first and third are covered with hemispherical shell, the second is turned. The arches of the right are connected at the top by a walkway enclosed with Guardrails and suspended over large niches that host, proceeding from the façade towards the presbytery, the baptismal font and two confessionals to temple. What characterizes the left wall, however, is the deep Center Chapel, dedicated to St Andrew, which bears a wooden ceiling and frescoes of the first ' 400 attributed to Antonio Alberti da Ferrara. From an exterior door to the balustrade of the chapel you enter the cell of Saint. The Interior isn't particularly enlightened; altogether there are three Windows that originates the natural light, one for each Bay. The span presbytery hosts a small canteen wooden altarpieces on pillars, behind which lies the altar fall within a balustraded elongated curving fence. Under the Arch of the back wall is affixed the altarpiece depicting the Madonna with Saints. The oratory crypt or Sant'Aldebrando cell is a small ancient crypt located under the apse of the Cathedral, which is accessed via an internal passageway; It served as a burial ground for those who were serving in the same Cathedral. Probably there was an altar for the mass of the dead and preserved the relics; There, also, the Saint withdrew into solitude to pray. The front lens group in clay, depicting the Saint, is the work of such Rodoloni, craftsman Hyppolite, who performed it in the same year when the present church was erected, 1776. Decorative elements in the chapel on the left you see frescoes on the life and miracles of Saint Andrew, attributed to Antonio Alberti da Ferrara
