  • I know, I know. You, like me, you don't like the exquisite "objects", especially when "highly decorated". Articles which, let's face it once and for all, are a torture, both in the Windows of the gioiellierie is in the cases of many museums of Italy shimmering Diocesan. How to behave at the "Museo del Duomo di Modena", which is part of the "Musei del Duomo" (notice, again, the genial preciosity of pun!) that contains the furnishings and vestments of the nearby Cathedral? Well, you might as well make a sort of treasure hunt instead, looking for the most precious object, but the simplest one. Thus, between turìboli, pìssidi and ostensorii, between aspersorii and pastoral, mitres, among tapestries and altar frontals, you will also find him, Shrek, in embossed copper, behind the holiest Holy you can't (at least here): San Geminiano. Shrek is a big-bellied, almost deformed, with two holes, eyes expressionless; the mouth, a hole longer, giving it an air blunt. From the neck springing up two strange things, which resemble the ears of the cartoon, but which are probably or sheaves of wheat or bundles of wood, do not know, but somewhere should be written. In short, Shrek is well acknowledged, the peasants in their place in rigid and static medieval society; Neither Saints nor warriors, but anonymous, as most artists that have shaped, carved, painted and embroidered with their hands every object of this museum.

  • The Duomo are in Via Lanfranco, close to the Church. There you can find the usual ecclesiastical artifacts and the Govt, which has Roman marbles of the Duomo. Next is the Ghirlandina Tower. To enter the museums costs €4. The single ticket site that includes museums, the Tower, the Acetaia Comunale, and the historical rooms of the Palazzo Comunale costs €6.

  • Definitely worth seeing but of objects are very few (those belonging to San Gemignano, a bubble and a book miniato)
