Santa Maria della Colonna
The church construction began in 1580, as part of a religious complex meant to house an orphanage, and later dedicated as a conservatory of Music. The building was restored in the 18th century, and its elaborate decorated facade dates from 1715, built by Antonio Guidetti. In 1896, she was again restored.
The interior has a Greek cross plan and cupola. The interior was decorated by the stucco artist Costantino D'Adamo and the choir was made by Domenico Bertone. The church has frescoes by Paolo De Matteis. The church is rarely open and in poor upkeep.
