The basilica has a facade designed by Arcangelo Guglielmelli, who was able to incorporate in the new project the only two Corinthian columns, dating back to the ancient temple of Dioscuri, that remained standing after the earthquake of 1688. The works included the review of stucco frames of the wall and columns, the revision of the stone balustrade and the restoration of the main gate.
