Vincenzo Lanza is also remembered in Foggia for the memorial tablet at the entrance of the Church of St. Thomas Apostle where the doctor was baptized. This tablet, probably dating back between 1865 and 1870, shows and commemorates Vincenzo Lanza as one of the most important figures born in Foggia that gave glory to his native town by his intelligence.
On the tablet you can read the following Italian inscription: THE ARCHIBISHOP GAETANO DEL MUSCIO/ AND PROF. VINCENZO LANZA/ WERE BAPTIZED HERE/ THAT FOR GREATNESS OF INTELLIGENCE/ VARIED AND RARE CULTURE IN A NUMBER OF DISCIPLINES/ BECAME SPLENDID TOWN GLORY.
