The goal set was that of clarifying the significant moments "of the monument in time"; to this end, a study was initiated with the direct examination of the existing constructions. At the same time, the historical-critical analysis was carried out, with the aim of identifying the stylistic-constructive and figurative features present, as well as the various phases of construction, through the study of the first additions and transformations affecting the initial nucleus, and afterwards of the first "restoration" interventions of the modern age (Renaissance and Baroque), and also the actions aimed at bringing back to the fore some moments of the history of the monument. A preliminary reading of the architectural enclosure reveals a complex structural stratification, albeit in the constant presence of those "features of straightforward simplicity and of solid continuity of the masonry", typical of architecture of Cistercian derivation. The second phase of the construction of the Assunta is marked by the changing of the wooden covering in the vaulted structure; in relation to this decision is the adoption of the new columns, constructed attached to the existing ones but with a cruciform section to support the new structure and to "check" the new spatial-distributive system.
