Church of San Bartolomeo
Church of San Bartolomeo

The church is an important example of the almost standardised Romanesque architecture that between the 12th and 13th centuries saw various constructions very similar to each other and for which this church and the identical San Lazzaro on the Via Emilia remain. The exact date of foundation for San Bartolomeo is understood through the ancient inscription of 1209. Restoration works after world war one saw the radical reconstruction of the façade and other parts, easily recognised by the lighter colour and the cleaner surface of the bricks. Today this building, pleasantly enclosed by a few beautiful trees (yews, cypress and holly) is a War Memorial.
