CHURCH OF THE DOMINICANS IS AMONG THOMAS CAMPANELLA
Vast , the Church of the Dominicans, magnified for
interest of T. Campanella.
Anch it and to Latin cross and of beautiful proportions. A
great door gave access to the aisle and when it was open the
really enchanting vision of the Styli Valley Mystic it was
had, closed sull extreme horizon of the sea. The principal
noble families of Stylus possessed every in this church one
noble chapel of theirs in which you/they buried the proper
joined. To the highest dell arc of every detached the noble
coat of arms. Church and convent remember the philosopher
stilese. In that he announced imminent novelties to the people'
politics and social, inferred from the position of the planets
and from the extraordinary phenomenons from that some is verified
for all in that time or it stayed absorbed in one of the stalemates
of the choir; in the convent it alternated the composition
of some works of his with the meetings with the conspirators.
MADONNA OF THE ROCK-CLIFF
Near Placanica, wound by a Rock-cliff, You Madonna
of the Rock-cliff,
destination of continuous pilgrimages from every part of the
world, a lot of the people that have received thanks. Monk
Cosimo, he who had the vision of the mother of God, of it
and the custodian.
ASKED HER AND THE CONVENTS
Asked her of Stylus, among
great and small, they were eighteen. I don't put in the account
that existing under l ' actual Matrix, from which all is observed
I express only l ' apse (The Portal of the Cathedral You Matrix
of Stylus ).
L' entered it has a magnificent portal of stones worked that
they are launched in ogival arc formed by a bundle of mullions
them and alternate lescie, that lean on the foot dell arc
twisted: this results from a treccio delicate vimineo that
replaces the capital. Aloft to the right and to the left of
the portal, traccies of two rose windows are visible, walled
perhaps when from the inside part of this façade l ' organ
was supported or perhaps before. .

Gossips give popular the cave close to that of the Madonna
of the Stella is pointed out as that some Devil (Cave of the
Devil Mountain Stella Pazzano ),
