  • I visited one afternoon holiday pass this building constructed, on a Latin cross and square form, between the 11th and 13th centuries. It was built near the Via Emilia and in a high position to prevent the flooding of the river Scrivia: measuring 40 meters long X 16 wide. The initial project survive 3 bays covered with ribbed vaults and the aisles have smooth cruise. Within the Abbey you can admire a series of frescoes, discreetly preserved, attributed to the family Boxilio, which date back to the late 15th century. We recommend a visit to the neighbouring province of Alessandria and uniqueness.

  • Passing on the A7 in the direction of Genoa after the exit of Tortona I always noticed this complex of Cistercian clear imprint. Is the Abbey of Santa Maria Assuntina Rivalta scrivia fraction of Tortona. Open Sundays and holidays from 15.30 to 18.30 on other days by appointment by calling 0131 817150. The visit accompanied by exhaustive knowledge volunteers is free but is welcome a voluntary support with the purchase of information material they produce. Some specialties, a Madonna and child nursing, a representation of the Trinity, the paintings in the apse and the Chapter House. Then we'll visit the first floor with the former prison cells and an exhibit on icons. The Interior recalls the Romanesque brick medieval climate environment common to other abbeys in the Po Valley. Many of the frescoes are interrupted by open Windows and lights that have defaced their design. Deserves a gem.
