Long Description:
You can see this old stone baptismal font inside the Basilica San Marco. The large basin has two bronze covers and a type of tabernacle crowned by the lamb of God.

An information board in front of the baptistery reads:

"Presso questo fonte battesimale, il 2 ottobre 1789, haricevuto il S. Battesimo la Serva di Dio Sr. Maria Teresa Spinelli (1789 - 1850).
