    Bust of Filippo Neri

    The bust of Filippo Neri can be found in the Chapel of San Filippo Neri at the Montagna Spaccata in Gaeta. Above the statue and below the statue are plaques describing the significance of Filippo Neri. I have written out these descriptions below.
    Description above statue:
    Qui, dove le rocce spaccatesi piansero la morte di Cristo, FILIPPO NERI, ritirandosi spesso solitario pellegrino dalla città di Cassino, si decise ad abbandonare completamente il mondo e le sue florie
    I sacerdoti della Congregazione, che lo ha come Patrono e Guida, posero questa lapide il 26 Maggio 1895, nel terzo centenario della sua morte.

    Here, where the rocks split, marking the death of Christ, often prayed a man named FILIPPO NERI. This solitary pilgrim from the city of Cassino decided to abandon the outside world and all its glories.
    The priests of the congregation of which he is the patron saint, placed this bust to commemorate the tri-centennial of is death, 26 May 1895.
