Church of Santi Pietro e Paolo Apostoli

Listen to the podcast

It is assumed that the parish church of Santi Pietro and Paolo was built around 1500. The only certain date we have is 1520, in which it obtained its autonomy.

At that time it consisted of a small Romanesque-style building with a gabled roof. About 200 years later it was lengthened, as evidenced by the measurements of the apse and the presbytery, which are indeed not proportionate to the nave.

The columns and the capital of the entrance portal, together with the first four altars, constitute the oldest part of the church: of notable value is the only fresco, that of the Madonna della Rondine, placed on the second altar on the left.

The other altars, present on the sides of the nave, are made up of wooden altarpieces of particular beauty and importance because most are from the Fantoni school.

The high altar is a small jewel thanks also to its white marble inlaid with floral motifs typical of the Baroque period, but it must not be forgotten that the sculptures of the angels are all from Fantoni’s school, as well as the triduum machine.

The paintings that can be admired are noteworthy: some canvases by Palma il Vecchio and Cignaroli and a valuable fresco from the school of Giambellino.
