The crypt of the church of San Domenico is where the Dominican friars were taken when they died.
This is one of the main places of silence in the church, a small space characterised by few elements such as an altar and closed arcades.
It is interesting to note the stark contrast between the bare and essential architectural structure of the crypt and the grandeur of the church’s spaces.
The interior of the church of San Domenico is characterised by an entirely white environment, with very high walls decorated with bright stuccoes that give the setting a solemn and scenic appearance.
However, there are some elements that stand out from all the whiteness, including the majestic main altar and the gilded wooden ciborium made by Antonio Basile.
The former is embellished with red and white marble and the latter, made with a wonderful curvilinear structure, encloses the Virgin and Child.
