San Donato is a church in Genoa, Northern Italy.It dates from the 12th century and is in Romanesque style. It became a parish under archbishop Siro il Porcello, and was consecrated on May 1, 1189.After the bombardment of 1684 it was restored several times, being again consecrated on December 4, 1892. Other restorations in 1946-1951 have kept its Romanesque appearance.The interior contains a Madonna by the 14th-century painter Nicolò da Voltri; a St Joseph, by Domenico Piola; and a marble relief of the Baptism of Christ, started by Ignazio Peschiera and completed by his pupil Carlo Rubatto.

  • San Donato is a charming little church at two steps from Palazzo Ducalle, down Climb Pollaiuoli (steady, you have no excuse ...). Admire the interior walls, floors, the Bell Tower and inside a beautiful altarpiece by Van Cleeve. in front of which there is a treat for music lovers: a photocopy of the birth certificate of static Niccolò Paganini ... more GAL!

  • The Church is beautiful, unique architecture and in my opinion well maintained. Beautiful also the Virgin and child, nursed, unique and very old. Too bad for the "perpetuity", a person who has nothing to do with the Church, is not a man of the church a person so rude. Shame really
