I've had the privilege of actually visiting the original Porziuncola.

If this is a 78% scale replica, it will too small for more than a handful of people to fit inside.

Awesome!

Thank you for posting this excellent example of sharing our Western cultural heritage.

Will there be a more complete site with more photographs once the work is concluded?
