The beginning of the history of the Church of San Giovanni, traces back to the seventeenth century. A.D. period in which some inhabitants from Torraca began to settle in the areas of Marinella and Timpone. It was in the early 600s that people started to build the church with a beautiful baroque bell tower.However, due to the bombing during the Second World War, the Church was severely damaged, although part of the bell tower’s base remained standing. It was thus, that from those bases, the sacred place began to be rebuilt, trying to be faithful as much as possible to was the original form later the church was rebuilt in its present form and on 19 August 2012 there was the inauguration of the new Church that today presents itself as you see it.
