A Cross within a Cross

Santa Maria del Soccorso crosses seen from via Magenta, Livorno
The church of Santa Maria del Soccorso has two external crosses: a large and hollow one above the facade and a smaller and simpler one on the top of its dome. There is only one point in Via Magenta from where we can see the two crosses one inside the other.

If you try to check this out be careful: the exact spot lies in the middle of the roadway.

Thanks for the warning! :)
I'm glad you braved the traffic for the shot.

Good that you know the one place and are brave enough to photograph from that spot in the street.
How many citizens know this place (or care)?
