Cathedral of San Giustino
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
The Cathedral of San Giustino, the diocese of Chieti, is the largest and most important church in the town of Chieti.
The site that now houses the cathedral Chieti has been occupied over the centuries by a long series of buildings. Leaving aside the assumptions about any pre-existing classical and early Christian, you are aware of the consecration of a new building by the Bishop Atto I in 1069 (Nov. 5), the source of two existing buildings on the site, whose structure is unknown to us , one of which was probably destroyed in Pepin cling to that city in 801, the other crashed in an unspecified date, after being created by the Frankish bishop Theodoric I (840).
The factory must have Attone orientation today, although there has been received in any way, unless (maybe), some element of the crypt, restored in the fourteenth century, a century which also built the first three floors of the bell.
In 1498, Antonio da Lodi add the top floor and the spire. The building began to take on the features of today around the turn of the seventeenth century, when the Archbishop-Count of Chieti, Matthew sown, will make a first major renovation, to which others will follow in part because of the disastrous earthquakes that strike the area ( first of all the famous earthquake of 1703).
In this period, including the archbishops of Monsignor Francesco Branca (1769) and Luigi Ruffo Scilla (1881), that the church takes the form of delicate late baroque that distinguish the interior.
But the story of the Cathedral of Chieti were not yet over: the years between 1920 and 1936, is in fact designed and built by Guido Cirilli accommodation that fundamentally changed the facade and the side of the cathedral (which is what the church shows the square) been redesigned in shapes inspired by the medieval part of the few surviving elements of contemporary decoration in the apse, in the most conspicuous examples of Romanesque architecture in the area to the south Adriatic. Eliminates the side entrance (originally accompanied by a staircase and a porch), designed a new portal, always tangent at itself, a new facade for the crossing, while the church and bell tower were embedded in a marble plinth and was rebuilt the spire bell drop because of the earthquake in 1703. Still, in the seventies, the policy of "recovery" then pursued by the regional superintendence, destroys the baroque decorations of the crypt, bringing to light the subject "layer" of medieval brick and only a few traces of frescoes.

Un documento di una città che conosco poco anzi niente ...
La costruzione è da studiare ...il campanile in primo piano ..e l'ingresso sembra laterale .
Sulla scelta del POV peraltro articolato è forse condizionato dalla luce .

Buona sera Silvio,
Peccato che tali focolai sono tra la cattedrale e voi, la lampada stessa, è stato bene.
Molto buona prospettiva e luce, splendido.
L'architettura è bella, soprattutto la torre.
