Mi piace paragonare l'Abbazia di Monteveglio ad una perla dentro all'ostrica. L'ostrica è rappresentata dal parco e dal borgo medioevale che circonda questa suggestiva abbazia. A me piace lasciare la ... more »I like to compare the Abbey of Monteveglio to a Pearl in the oyster. The oyster is represented by the Park and from the medieval village that surrounds this charming Abbey. I like to leave the car in the parking lot at the base of the Hill and back walk unpaved roadways characteristics that lead to the village. You enter by an arch dominated by a tower which is all that remains of a castle, once belonged to Countess Matilda of Canossa, who knew how to handle in 1092 the siege by Henry IV (Henry IV). Note that this is the same Emperor Henry IV in 1077, just below the castle of Canossa, had become famous for being humiliated in front of the Pope to obtain the lifting of the excommunication. This time Henry IV emerged humiliated by comparison with Countess Matilda, because the siege of the castle of Monteveglio failed and in addition during the battle the son died! Entered the medieval walls along the cobbled street lined with various ancient houses, still partly inhabited (including an Inn) and arrive at the open area dominated by the Abbey Church dedicated to Santa Maria Assunta. This church was built in the Romanesque period but then, over the centuries, several modifications were made. In the years between 1927 and 1933 the church underwent a major intervention on the part of the architect Rivani who tried to remove the Baroque additions, in order to restore the original Romanesque style. Now the Church, externally, it has simple lines with typical Emilian bricks. The Interior is very interesting and is situated on three levels: a crypt, the plane on which are the faithful and a presbytery of about three meters. In the crypt there are some massive columns of different styles surmounted by capitals one different from the next. In addition to the columns, take the time there are also great pillars, these different tighter line. The upper level, where the faithful is simple, divided into three naves, the walls are placed two huge wooden reliquaries decorated. The presbytery is divided into three naves. In the middle is a red marble altar, above which there hangs a crucifix. The apse is decorated with floral bands alternated with red bricks. The left aisle can access the cloister of the Abbey, where they currently reside 12 Franciscan friars.

The Abbey of Monteveglio is set in the middle of a park, which I've visited. The ancient castle of Monteveglio remain only the entrance and the Tower dated around 1,300 d.C. Already in the 8th century this castle was part of a system of fortifications to stop the Lombards beyond the confines of the exarchate. Around the year 1,000 became fief of Canossa and Monteveglio was fundamental for the desperate resistance that the Countess Matilde opposed the Emperor Henry IV, who saw his own son dying, in combat, at the entrance to the village. In really "tame" who held head, circa 1530, helped also by the weather, the Mercenaries, mercenaries of Charles V of Habsburg, who produced so much damage then with the "sack of Rome". The real attraction is the Romanesque and Romanesque church, Abbey. The Interior is on three levels. At the basic level, where they are the faithful, you can see columns and Roman capitals. The Church is divided into 3 naves with the presbytery on the crypt probably built before the year 1000. The Bell Tower is special: it does not rest on any Foundation, was built directly on one of the apses. The village is still inhabited and well maintained.
