The Sacresty

The Sacresty
Crossing the door at the end of the central apse you enter another door in front to enter the majestic sacristy. The imposing seventeenth-century wardrobes, carved by the Jesuit Lombard Giovan Paolo Taurino (1580 c. - 1656), in which the late-Romanesque vocabulary is expressed in an already baroque redundancy. In the bezel of counter-facade is the fresco depicting the dream of the prophet Elijah of Orazio Ferraro (1561-1643). On the altar you can admire the seventeenth-century wooden machine with the monumental reliquary, a later crucifix and a Nativity scene of the eighteenth century.
