The outstanding restoring works of the church belonging to the Order of Theatines dedicated to S. Vincenzo, built at the end of the 16th century, allowed for a grand reopening in 2009 of a modern auditorium with excellent acoustic. It can host about 150 spectators. The church offers an impressive decorative interior, all walls were fully covered by frescoes betweenthe 17th and the 19th century. A complex decorative plan with trompe-l'oeil frames on vaults and in the domes, the walls present pictures of saints, angels and prophets, scenes from the Bible and allegories, by renowned painters among which there were RobertoDe Longe and Giovanni Evangelista Draghi. The most interesting intervention that characterizes the church today – and its new use – is the wooden stage where once the main altar stood, protected by an innovative transparent acoustic chamber that turned Sala dei Teatini into a space specially designed for concerts and musical events.
