Bronze portal for the Cathedral



The former parson of the parish of Santo Stefano decided to use all his mother's inheritance to renovate the Cathedral's doors (three entrances). He asked a local famous sculptor to make three bronze portals.

This is the front portal, representing a long row of people going towards Christ, source of light.

Wow! His momma must have left him quite a lot of money to work with. This is beautiful!! And such a unique overlapping shape to the left door.
