Piazza Tazzo was built in 1866 and named after a local writer famous for his poetry. His name was Torquato Tasso and there is still a statue to honor him. It is a lively town center with many shops and cafés.
In my painting, the scenic view of the gorge and sea is on the left. There is a railing and flags lining the overlook.
Many locals and visitors alike stroll through the piazza lined with buildings in the bright pastel palette of the region.
Standing serenely in the center of the activity is a statue of Sant’Antonius di Sorrento, a local abbot from Campania who relocated to the city during the Lombard invasions
On the right is the ornate façade of the medieval church Chiesa di Santa Maria del Carmine. Its sunny yellow with white trim invites locals into the cool interior.
