The Neonian Baptistery
Next to the Duomo you can see the Neonian or Orthodox baptistery, in the heart of a small well-kept garden. In the summer, on the occasion of the Feast of St. John, Holy Mass is celebrated “with open doors”: an invitation to enter, to savor the beauty of the rite within these precious spaces.
Even today, if you are lucky, you can also attend some baptisms, in this place-symbol of the sacrament. The only danger is that of witnessing distracted by the contemplation of the dome and perhaps by a question: who is that third character who appears in the Baptism of Christ, next to the Savior and Saint John?
