WELCOME IN THE JESUITS’ STORY IN NAPLES HELD IN THE MOST IMPORTANT CHURCH: THE GESU’ NUOVO
The Gesù Nuovo
The Gesù Nuovo Church is a monumental work of art born in 1470 thanks to the Sanseverinos, Princes in Salerno. The facade is the most important feature to highlight. It’s unique in its genre. It offers particular diamond tipped sculpted clews. The whole Church is a museum which is risking to lose priceless value pieces, without deep structural interventions. It’s necessary to give back the right value to the ancient beauties, the right light to every canvas, the respectful grace to every statue and architectonical detail.
The campaign "Riaccendiamo il Gesù Nuovo" is an ambitious and unique project in its genre. Our aim is to give back brightness to a huge part of Naples artistic and cultural heritage. The first crowdfunding campaign calls for a goal of 630.000 Euros to support all the costs necessary to renovate the first works of art and the ‘new light’ of the whole Church structure. The path is supposed to be very long… and this is just the beginning!
