Here are shown the paintings of the high altar and of some of the lateral altars. I like them very much and I was a little amazed when I saw them in their brightness, since I remember that in the tip about Sant'Antonio Nuovo I created some months ago, I had written that "the inside is rather bare". Well, no, it isn't bare, it is just neoclassic. The neoclassic style is the style of beauty meant as harmony and balance (ancient Greek concepts), therefore neoclassic churches haven't got so many windows as the Gothic nor so many sculptures as the baroque ones.
