Taking up the diacritical literature of the eighteenth-century travelers who spent at least one day visiting the medieval and modern city, before going down into the valley, accompanied by the “guides” of the time that almost obliged them to this path, which included the Cathedral, where the Sarcophagus of Phaedra was kept, and the Lucchesian Library – despite their disappointment of not being able to immediately see the temples and other antiquities immersed in the historical landscape – was considered historic par excellence, where various types of cultural heritage are found (architectural, bibliographic, archival, archaeological, artistic, landscape), dated from the fifth century BC to the twentieth century, and its connection, through two paths identified of the medieval road system (Via Saponare – Piano Barone), with the other historical axis, where there are some religious buildings – churches and convents – referable to the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, which contain works of art of considerable cultural interest. Among these we mention the former Convents of San Domenico, today the seat of the Palazzo di CittĂ , and that of the PP. Filippini, desirable location of a museum of contemporary art, which currently houses part of the medieval and modern collections of the former Civic Museum from 1955 sold in perpetual use at the Stao. Of these are part of the paintings dated from the sixteenth to the twentieth century (Butafoco, Novelli, Provenzani, Fra Felice Padre Fedele Politi), including those of the sonata collection (center paintings by Francesco Lo Jacono, pupils and epigones).
