Chiesa di San Pancrazio, Genoa

Chiesa di San Pancrazio, Genoa

The church of San Pancrazio is a religious building in the historic center of Genoa, located in Piazza San Pancrazio near Via Fossatello Sottoripa. The parish community is part of the West Central Vicariate of the Archdiocese of Genoa. The first mention of the church and noble families Calvi Pallavicini date back to the eleventh century, although the current building is a reconstruction of the eighteenth century. The church is centrally planned and with a high dome, and several pictorial and sculptural elements. Apse frescoes are the work of painter Giacomo Antonio Boni, while the triptych of the Life of St. Pancras - dating from the early sixteenth century, dismantled in 1691 and recently reconstructed behind the marble altar after a restorative intervention - was attributed to Adrien Ysenbrant.
