Cattedrale di Parma, Parma
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Fragments of ancient mosaics in the crypt of Cattedrale di Parma are evidence of a cult temple that existed before the church was established. The entire church is covered with artwork from the beginning of Italy's artistic golden age. Bertolino de'Grossi, Prospero Clemeti, Girolamo Clemeti, and Luchino Bianchini are just some of the artists who contributed to the architecture. The side chapels were built to shelter the sepulchres of Parma's noble families. Some retain the original decor from the 14th century. The capitals that represent both mythological creatures and Biblical scenes sit next to each other.
