Neighborhood: Irnerio

The church of San Benedetto was built in the 12th Century, and placed in the care first of the Benedictine monks, then the friars of St Francis of Paola. The original entrance was in Via Galliera but with the building of Via Indipendenza in 1892, the east-west layout of the church was altered and now the frescoes on the vault by Mastellari (1882) are in the reverse order for the route followed by the modern visitor. The church is also home to the statue of St Francis of Paola by PiĆ², the Tears of the Virgin by Tiarini and the Deposition from the Cross by Aretusi.
