The Oratory was built in 1638 by the homonymous Congregation. The first decorations with paintings and frescoes began in 1658. An explosion of colours and harmony. It was conceived striking a careful balance; the pictorial works of the Oratory are a paradigmatic exampleof rich Baroque decoration and is itself unique in an urban context. The Oratory has undergone a systematic restoration.
The inner courtyard was covered with a light steel and opal glass cover. From the covered courtyard a ramp takes you to the area of the facilities for the spectators and the dressing rooms for the artists.
