Inside the church of San Lorenzo in Lucina in Rome, Italy.

"The most ancient memories of the basilica go back to the 5th century. It was later completely rebuilt by Pasquale II (1099-1118) and consecrated in 1130 by Anacletus II, the antipope. For a long time, the church served the outer limits of the populated area to the north. At the end of the 16th century, it came to have one of the largest number of parishioners. In 1606, Paul V granted it to the Chierici Regolari Minori of St. Francis Caraccioli, known as the Caracciolini. Towards the end of the 17th century, drastic rebuilding got underway, directed by Cosimo Fanzago (1591-1678), of which only the marble inlay pulpit and two baptismal fonts survive today. The nave shows its 19th century character, due to the restoration undertaken in 1856-60 by Pope Pius IX (whose coat of arms is repeated twice in the lacunar ceiling)." (Text found inside the church).

Sometimes it rains even in Naples: Piazza del Plebiscito.

"Piazza Plebiscito is one of the largest squares in Naples. It is named for the plebiscite taken on October 2 in 1860 that brought Naples into the unified Kingdom of Italy under the House of Savoy. Located very closely to the gulf of Naples, it is bounded on the east by the Royal Palace and on the west by the church of San Francesco di Paola with colonnades extending to both sides.

In the first years of the 19th century, the King of Naples was Murat (Napoleon's brother-in-law). He planned the square and building as a tribute to the emperor. When Napoleon was finally dispatched, the Bourbons were restored to the throne of Naples.

Ferdinand I continued the construction but converted the finished product into the church one sees today. He dedicated it to Saint Francis of Paola, who had stayed in a monastery on this site in the 16th century. The church is reminiscent of the Pantheon in Rome. The façade is fronted by a portico resting on six columns and two Ionic pillars. Inside, the church is circular with two side chapels. The dome is 53 metres high." (Text from Wikipedia).
