  • In front of the Basilica di San Savino is the little park "Giardino Merluzzo" if large, beautiful trees shading, so much for the Church, that it is almost impossible to view the façade, facing the Park. Only from the Church's corners, one can see the Baroque façade was added to the Church in 1721. I had not read about this church, before I visited it, and when I saw the façade in the Baroque style, I figured after all with that the Church also was from 1700-century. But it was a completely different church that greeted me when I came into the much older Chapel. San Savino is dedicated to Piacenzas the second Bishop (333-420), and was consecrated in 1107. Possibly, there has been a church on the same place already from the first of 900-number. When you enter this old spaces in Romanesque style, stands in a room that is only partially preserved original. Not only the façade was changed in 1721. About 100 years earlier was the church interior was renewed (destroyed). In front of the high altar an unusually wide staircase leads down to the Church's crypt, where one can admire the magnificent mosaic floor from 1100 century with the twelve signs of the zodiac with the ocean waves around. I have visited a great number of European Churches, but never before seen the twelve zodiac in a church before here in San Savino. In pressure, which I unfortunately don't bytes could go up because there were cordoned off, found even a mosaic with a chess game. Pictures of this can be found on the Internet. In the Church's dome can be seen beautiful frescoes with scenes from the old testament, among other things, a picture of Abraham is being stopped by an Angel just before he is about to kill Isaac. Who is this beautiful dome picture, malt, I have not been able to read me. Despite the changes of both internal and façade, Savinos San is it is a great experience to visit this old church.
