Oratorio della Purità information
The Oratorio della Purità has a beautiful ceiling painting of the Assumption by Giambattista Tiepolo, and eight biblical scenes in chiaroscuro by Giandomenico Tiepolo on the walls. The building had been raised as a theatre in 1680 but the patriarch of Aquileia had it transformed 80 years later out of repugnance for such a devilish institution so close to Udine's 13th-century cathedral. Ask in the cathedral for a guided tour (free) of the oratory, which is otherwise generally not open.
