Description

Nice early image of the Obelisk of San Gennaro in Naples.

The Obelisk of San Gennaro (begun 1636, completed 1650) is located in the square dedicated to Cardinal Sisto Riario Sforza. It is the work of Cosimo Fanzago, perhaps the greatest architect of the Neapolitan Baroque. The spire was erected to celebrate the deliverance of the city from the great earthquake of 1631.
