A $2.9 Mil Chapel for North Beach

SF Luxe photog Drew Alitzer stepped inside the one project that North Beach has thrown its support behind lately: the $2.9 million chapel, the Porziuncola Nuova. A replica of a Benedictine chapel built in Assisi, Italy in 1209, the PN (as it shall henceforth be known) will sit in the National Shrine of St. Francis of Assisi. The lawyer who spearheaded the project shipped in Italian masons, fresco artists, and woodworkers to replicate the original from hundreds of photographs— totally North Beach, no? [SF Luxe]
