Why locals love it

Inside the beautiful Church of Santa Maria della Vita (founded in the second half of the 13th century) a true masterpiece of the Italian sculpture can be seen: it was modelled by Niccolò dell'Arca in the second half of the 15th century and it depicts a Lamentation over the Dead Christ. You will be impressed by this piece of art.

Why you should visit it

The drama and emotion of the sculpted figures do not have equal in the Italian culture of the time. Their expression of grief is incredibly modern and real.

Special tip

Entrance cost is 3 Euros, but includes also the access to another area of the church and the Oratory.
