Church of S. Giorgio dei Genovesi - Palermo

Piazza S. Giorgio dei Genovesi. Erected in the second half of the 1424th century. Based on a project by Giorgio Di Faccio. by the Genoese community on the same place where the Church of the Confraternity of S. Luca stood (XNUMX). The church is divided into three naves and this underlines the ambition of the project, since the cost of the work was very important. The church does not have a portico to emphasize the exclusively religious use of the structure which is considered one of the most important examples of Palermo's Renaissance architecture. Inside there are many contemporary paintings and funerary steles of the various Genoese families residing in the city.

The Crypt was probably the burial place of the ancient colony of Genoese merchants
