  • The Church of the commandery is located in Borgo Durbecco in Faenza. It is part of the parish of Saint Antoninus. The first documents some of the Church date back to 1137 and attest to its function as a hospice for pilgrims going to the Holy land. The building has a whole series of architectural overlays not perfectly harmonized among them because of the long period of time (3-400 years) in which they were made. The Romanesque church presents the apse, a squat, square bell tower and a portico with arches on the side of the road. The Loggia was built probably to withstand the pressure of time and avoid structural failure previously occurred. The façade is decorated with glazed bowls at the peak of the gable. The Interior has a nave with lowered since built after 1300 crash caused most probably by an earthquake. The apse is decorated with a large fresco by Girolamo da Treviso executed in 1533. It portrays the Madonna enthroned with the child in your arms, between Mary Magdalene and Saint Catherine of Alexandria; alongside the Magdalene are Saint John the Baptist and Fra Sabba (who had commissioned the fresco) kneeling. At the top, on the apse, appears the figure of the Eternal Father among a swarm of angels. The sides of the fresco, in chiaroscuro, the figure of the Archangel Michael and Saint Jerome.

  • One of the most ancient in the ancient Faence Church Kommenda on Corso Europa traces its history back to the 12th century, but the most important thing in her life that already from the XIII CENTURY it becomes the headquarters of the order of Malta in the city. Even its name is derived from the word "Commander", i.e., the local chapter of the order, a senior on the team the Knights of the order of Malta in this place-only and not the other way around. Externally the Church is stark Romanesque Basilica, although the Interior over the years of its existence has become more Baroque elements, with preserved some elements and objects of the XII-XIII centuries, dating back to Malta.

  • Beautiful Romanesque church, small, simple, but cosy and furnished with beautiful frescoes. Adjacent is a very impressive cloister which leads directly from the bar, animated during the month of June as ' local headquarters of the Borough of urbecco (former rione bianco). In the morning it is always open and during the month of June in the evening. Well worth a visit!
