How to get there

The Dome is located in the inner of the town, where Piazza del Duomo and Piazza Ordelaffi get together. It is easy to rich both by car and by bus.

In 1636 the image of Madonna del Fuoco was set there. Madonna del Fuoco has been worshiped by Forlì citizens since 1428.
It was totally restored in 1841 by Giulio Zanbianchi. The façade is in laertio and it is characterized by a neoclassical monumental pronaos supported by six Corinthian columns.
