The Cathedral of Cefalu
This is the second most important Church in Sicily after the one in Monreale. This magnificent Cathedral is the brightest symbol of the fight between angels and demons, between Good and Evil. For his magnificent beauty, this Cathedral has also been declared World Heritage by Unesco.
The construction of Cefalù Cathedral was wanted by Roger II, King of Sicily, in 1131. According to a legend, the King built the Church because he was saved from a storm during his travel by boat from Salerno to Palermo. During the storm, he promised to build a Church if the Lord would have saved him. Landed in Cefalù, unharmed and saved, Roger II kept his promise and built the Church as a vow to our Lord and the Saints Peter and Paul. Unfortunately, in 1154, the sudden death of King Roger prevented to finish the Church and the body of Roger II was buried in Palermo, first. Before dying, Roger had established that the Cathedral had to become a royal mausoleum to bury the members of the Royal Family. Indeed, the King had set to built two stone-marbled sarcophagus with mosaics engraved and canopies. In 1215, King Frederick II deceived the Bishop of Cefalù Arduin and transported the two sarcophagus of Roger II to Palermo because he wanted the Cathedral only for himself and his family. Later, the remains of the body of Roger II were relocated to Cefalù, but buried in a simple marble grave without decorations, where they are still today. Due to these vicissitudes, the Cathedral endured many interruptions during the works to build it and many sides of it remained unfinished during the Middle Age. However, the Cathedral was consecrated in 1267 by Bishop Rudolf, some months before the one in Monreale.
The second cover story for our Fall 2019 issue features @westernunion’s new headquarters in Denver’s Tech Center. The space is as innovative as the 168-year-old company itself, with the community space inspired by the North American coffee-shop boom of the late 20th century, with artwork by @detour303. The @genslerdenver-designed HQ features an eclectic combination of furnishings and a variety of seating styles to encourage flexibility and spontaneity among Western Union’s workers, as well as bright colors, graphics and collages that pay homage to the global regions the company serves.
