The Arch of the Saviour

Massa (MS) XVI- XVII centuries

Commissioned by the City of Massa (MS). - One of the Renaissance doors of the city was transformed around 1690 in a monumental arch entirely covered on the exterior in cavernous limestone on the top of which there are white Carrara marble pinnacles and an imposing statue of the Saviour. The constant exposure of the white Apuan marble and other stones to the traffic, caused the formation of heavy black crusts that have been removed with a careful stone restoration.
