  Notes of art in Lombardy

As its name states, the Church of S. Michele Vetere is the oldest in Cremona. According to tradition, it was founded by the Lombard queen Teodolinda in the second half of the seventh century. The important reconstruction of the eleventh century and subsequent alterations in the fifteenth and seventeenth centuries did not erase the Lombard Romanesque forms visible in the harmonious façade, in the columns decorated with archaic capitals and in the apse characterized by long corbels and thin single-lancet windows. In the crypt, considered the original heart of the church, there are ancient columns with capitals from the Longobard era.
