  • Beautiful 16th century Italian Renaissance church completely painted. Among the artists who worked there, Giulio Campi, one of the largest mannerists levers. The Church has a single nave with ten side chapels and annexed fifteenth-century ancient Carmelite convent, partly transformed into educational institution.

  • The Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie is located just outside the village and it's really beautiful, surrounded by greenery, filled with frescoes and paintings. Go see it!

  • With about 10 minutes of walk from the Rocca di Soncino you arrive at this beautiful church, located on the road leading from Bergamo in Cremona. Built between 1501 and 1520 about, thanks to funding of the noble families of Soncino. The simple brick façade and inside a beautiful façade portends no judgement. The Interior has a single nave with a barrel vault and ten chapels on the sides, a fine example of the nascent Mannerism. To paint it we thought Francis Scanzi, Giulio Campi for the part relating to the altar, and the brothers Campbell from Lodi. You must to Francesco Scanzi the first, fourth and fifth Chapel to the left and all the chapels on the right. The subjects are mainly the Madonna and child, the flight into Egypt, the Annunciation, the appearance of Jesus to Mary Magdalene and representation of various saints. The presbytery is ribbed vault and the four sails are depicted the evangelists attributed to Giulio Campi. The same painter lever is credited with the assumption of Mary in a riot of angels represented at the top center of the Church.

  • Church with architecture influenced by Alberti and Bramante, with decorations of 500 well made (the Sadiq, the fields and Campbell), which cover most of the Interior. Wonderful contrast between last friezes (decorated) and murals simulants coffered vaults in the side chapels. Strong emotional impact the paintings of Campbell of the counter (last judgement) and the portion of the ceiling with decorations that imitate a Bower where angels and cherubs.

  • On the edge of town lies this remarkable example of Renaissance architecture. The Interior has a total decoration; some frescoes were completed by Giulio Campi and Francesco Sadiq.

  • Just south of Soncino lies this amazing Church for the amount of mainly sixteenth century frescoes that adorn it. Particularly impressive the last judgment on the wall of entry of Francis and Bernard Campbell.
