  Notes of art in Lombardy

Located in the Piazza del Comune, the heart of the city, along with the grandiose architecture of the Duomo and the towering shape of the Torrazzo, participates in the beauty of the square. It is a Romanesque building of extraordinary architectural value created from 1167. Octagonal plan is crowned by an elegant gallery that runs on all sides made in the sixteenth century along with the marble cladding that decorates two facades and the entrance porch. Inside, the majestic octagonal compartment is divided into three orders by niches, galleries and cornices and is dominated by the magnificent eight-part dome. The indirect light that filters in the great environment through the galleries and the lantern at the top of the vault enhances its appeal. The Baptistery houses the Romanesque Stone Museum which contains remains of the medieval decoration of the Duomo.
