In the XII century the plan for building a new Church, wanted by the Benedictines for widening the space dedicated to the worship, was started.

Works were stopped after a few decades, when the monks left the convent.

Of this project the external walls remain nowadays and inside, on the right side, there are five columns, four of which having a Corinthian capital.

It is however possible to infer clearly the structure of this Church: cross-shaped layout, a nave and two aisles, a transept, an apse, a choir with ambulatory and radial chapels.

The continuity between the old perfectly completed church and the Incompiuta (Unfinished) creates an evocative passage from physic to metaphysic, from finite to infinite.

The Incompiuta, with its structure barely sketched out and never completed, suggests a non-defined iconography, something that is here, but is intangible and slips from the power of human understanding.
