Basilica di Santa Cecilia in Trastevere

 Santa Maria della Scala
Santa Cecilia in Trastevere is a 9th century monastic church and minor basilica located at Piazza di Santa Cecilia 22 in Trastevere.
The most famous object of art in Santa Cecilia: the late renaissance statue by Stefano Maderno of St. Cecilia, finished in 1600. A striking statue, Maderno claims that he simply reproduced what he saw when the tomb of the 2nd century saint was opened in 1599.
