Parrocchiale Santi Pietro e Paolo

The construction of the imposing Romanesque church probably dates back to the 12th century. Of considerable interest are the doorway with stylised lions, the lunette and the capitals with Romanesque sculptures executed by the master craftsman Albertus at the time of Federico Barbarossa, as evidenced by the Latin inscription around it. The interior, with three large naves, has undergone restoration and refurbishment over the centuries: of the ancient building, only the Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament survives. The current appearance is datable to the end of the 16th century, almost certainly conferred by the project of Pellegrino Tibaldi. The works that adorn the Collegiate Church include the panel painting by Alessandro Berri illustrating the Last Supper and a 15th century fresco representing Our Lady of Mercy.
