Explanation:
On Diziorom I found, "Piccola costruzione,antistante la facciata di una chiesa o altro edificio sacro, che ha lo scopo di porre in evidenza e coprire l'ingresso. Il p. (prothyrum), che nel mondo romano disegnava il collegamento fra la porta d'ingresso della casa e l'atrio, assunse molto probabilmente nell'architettura cristiana l'originaria funzione di proteggere i questuanti."

Explanation:
