A further restoration took place at the end of the seventeenth century, reaching up to the present with the same features, restored in 2004 thanks to a farsighted restoration promoted by Don D. Minetti with the supervision of the Superintendency for Cultural Heritage, which has enhanced and enhanced the ancient and original structure.
