  • Beautiful Romanesque building. Inside there is the small Museo delle Pietre Dure, with medieval sculptures. Overall it is rather bare: there are only three altars, two decorated with altarpieces and Baroque statues, the other with a 14th century crucifix.

  • By looking a little stocky, the Cremona baptistery lacks the momentum that characterises the Torrazzo, giving the impression of an architecture a little seedy, also due to the fact that only half of the building was covered with marble, while the other half is the poor relation of the bricks with which he was raised. I wonder if this has been induced by changing economic or political circumstances, or if there was anything a symbolic wishes!
