Among the new buildings,  the most important ones are the Institute of Santa Croce and the House of the “Buon Pastore”. Today belonging to the Church of san Giovanni battista , the Church of Santa Croce, was built in 1898, on the intercession of the cord Cesarino and Brother Angelico. It was completely restored in 1922 and after the earthquake, unfortunately suffered structural damage that led to a new restoration.
