Sacred Art

Man sublimates in sacred art the magnificence of God

Liturgical furniture and its adaptation in churches, according to the reform of the Second Vatican Council

Architecture and liturgy have always lived in a close relationship of mutual stimulation and aid; this relationship has changed over the course of history as a result of changes in civil society, culture, and man's way of relating to God. The most impressive and otherwise the most recent of these changes occurred with the issuance of the guidelines for the liturgical adaptation of churches according to the liturgical reform of the work of the Second Vatican Council (1962-65), which indicated how to implement the adaptation of liturgical zones in churches, an adaptation necessary for better liturgical functionality and the active participation of the faithful in the celebration.


And so it is that thanks to the foresight of the late Bishop Amoroso we have, between 1995-1997, the opportunity to enrich our "know how" by carrying out the adaptation of the liturgical places of the cathedral of Trapani on the project of Arch. Rinaudo. Every smallest detail, from the cubic shape of the altar to the number of steps of the baptismal font, has a very specific symbolic value. One of the world's leading experts on liturgy, Bishop Crispino Valenziano, described in his book "The New Liturgical Places of Trapani Cathedral" (1998) the liturgical adaptation of Trapani Cathedral as the first (for the time) splendid example of the liturgical reform of the places of celebration in Italy. The experience gained and the recognition of our professionalism has allowed us to become a point of reference by carrying out over the years the liturgical adaptation in several dioceses in Italy by building and integrating in the churches the marble altar, the bema, the baptismal font, the Easter candle, the 'ambo, the ciborium.

We also specialize in making commemorative busts and plaques as well as reproductions of the bishop's and cardinal's coats of arms inlaid with polychrome marble.
