The rich and complex cycle of paintings adorning the main dome of the Basilica of Santa Maria di Campagna, a masterpiece by Pordenone, the greatest exponent of the Friulian sixteenth century, "pictor modernus" for his contemporaries, "rare and famous" for Vasari, depicts the Eternal Father supported by a glory of angels from which descend characters and stories of Christianity.
