After World War II to the reopening of the Cathedral

After the Second World War began the process of migration to the northern regions of Italy, Germany, France, Belgium, Argentina, the USA and Canada. In recent years there has been an economic recovery, due to the development of tourism, which is the main resource of the baroque city. On 13 March 1996, the dome of the cathedral collapsed due to a lack of construction and structural overload determined by the building of a concrete slab above the nave. The city has been listed as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO in 2002. At the end of a long and complex restoration, the church was reopened after seven years of work June 18, 2007.
