[4]The ancient depictions for San Giorgio

The scenic staircase of the church of San Giorgio hosted performances of plays about the patron saint until the 18th century.
The stories performed on the staircase, used as an open-air stage, told of the chivalrous deeds of “Giorgio di Capocci” who freed the Queen of Berito from the Dragon, but there were also other comedies, tragedies and operas.
