Stepping inside, you can easily perceive a religion other than that to which surely we are more familiar: looking around, the salient feature certainly is to find very few symbols, objects or decorative elements details, that indicate to Christianity in an outward sense. The décor is no frills and no waste, as we are accustomed to see in any Catholic Church, maintaining sobriety and simplicity that doesn't diminish at all the elegance, neither internally nor externally and. If you ask why, explained in summary, just know that the Protestant doctrine provides an interpretation more gaunt and literal Bible, therefore missing what has been freely added by Popes and councils (complete with dates and bubbles) over the centuries Next ... But don't be fooled by the rigour of the furnishings and architecture: the Waldensian Protestant Christians are extremely open and very friendly, and their deacons do not pull back when there are details to illustrate the curious, even to the the sole interest of the latter on purely technical issues. Worthy of attention, from a historical and artistic standpoint, are: the governing body recently restored and enlarged, Pinchi, timeless beauty and value and the splendid pulpit. In the temple there are also concerts, choirs and other events, not necessarily religious, contributing indirectly to make known this place, from the story unexpectedly rich, articulate and even deeply troubled.

We were greeted by a friendly lady who made by Cicero and answered our questions. Compared to other places of worship we found that lacks the Tabernacle, there is the raised altar, missing images and is much more stripped down. Very nice organ.
