In the presbytery (to the right of the observer) the marble ambo is placed, enriched by a gilded bronze ornament depicting the vine plant: biblical image (cf. Jn. 15, 1-11) that Jesus uses to describe the vital intimate relationship between Jesus and his disciples (the Church). The ambo is the place where solemnly the Word of God is proclaimed, the life blood necessary to the life of the Church.
