    The Baroque façade of the church conceals a Romanesque building. The Interior in turn conceals the crypt which extends below the apse. It is divided into aisles by columns surmounted by capitals decorated, but awesome is the mosaic floor all in black and white, with some yellow and red cards. Represents the cycle of the months against the backdrop of the sea. Don't miss the precious wooden crucifix of the altar, which dates from the 12th century.

    This is my favorite Church among those that I visited in Piacenza. For fans of mosaics and medieval symbolism in particular is not to be missed. There are only those of the crypt, which already would be worth visiting, there is also that of the presbytery, too full of symbolic meanings. It's a real gem. Then there are the really superb paintings and sculptures. My Favorites? The statue of San Savino that performs the miracle of the op, here represented by the floor and the Crucifix of the 11th century with open eyes to mean that Jesus is alive. Things to get lost in the many works of art!

    The building is of Romanesque style, the façade was changed and covered by the current one in the Baroque period. From the Romanesque period are visible externally-only Portal architraves-. The unadorned Interior, traced back to the original forms by eliminating the Baroque additions, presents in the nave an unusually wide staircase that gives immediate access to the crypt front bottom, whose ceiling is supported by slender columns adorned with beautiful capitals one different from the next. The floor, with ample compensation, has a beautiful black and white tesserae mosaic carpet. Within ten circles and two rectangles, the latter on the sides of altariolo, depicting the signs of the zodiac.
