In Naples, in the heart of the Sanità district, a church has reopened on the occasion of an exhibition not to be missed. Here are the details on the free event.
A few weeks ago the Church of Sant’Aspreno ai Crociferi reopened to the public. It is a church in the Sanità district, the district famous for being the birthplace of Totò. The church of Sant’Aspreno ai Corciferi has reopened its doors also on the occasion of another opening, that of the Jago museum.
On the occasion of the reopening of the church at Crociferi, the sculptor Jago and the La Paranza Cooperative have transformed some spaces into a museum that will host the Pietà and the sculptural group of Ajax and Cassandra.
Reopening of the Church of the Crociferi in the Sanità district
On the occasion of the new exhibition by the sculptor Jago and the La Paranza cooperative, it is possible to visit the Church of Sant’Aspreno ai Crociferi, closed until a few weeks ago.
The Church itself is an attraction that deserves to be visited. In fact, it is a church dedicated to the first bishop of the city. After being subjected to damage due to natural disasters, the church was rebuilt in the eighteenth century.
On the occasion of the reopening of the Church it is possible to admire the culptural group of the Pietà by Jago is a marble sculpture intended to be a symbol of recollection and pain of humanity.
The sculpture returns to the place where it was conceived after being exhibited in the Church of the Artists and in Palazzo Bonaparte in Rome.
The new museum center will also host two other events, Luce al Rione Sanità and Tornaccantà, in line with the project of the rector of the church of Sant’Aspreno ai
Crociferi don Antonio Loffredo. Loffredo has the merit of underlining for some time the importance of human capital and art in order to make the Sanità district.
