Description

The Diocese of Cremona, located in the center of the Po Valley, in addition to the cathedral and the church of Santi Maria e Sigismondo in Rivolta d'Adda, buildings that have long been the focus of scholars' attention, preserves an important religious architectural heritage from the Romanesque period made up of emergencies that dot the territory known even to specialists only in a minimal part. For the first time, with the help of a new and specific photographic campaign, the churches scattered in the endless countryside of the ancient Diocese of Cremona, from the northernmost churches and chapels in the province of Bergamo to the southern ones along the axis of the Great River , are analyzed and put into dialogue through dedicated cards. The strictly diocesan limits of the investigation, in adherence to a history of art for regional schools, could lead us to identify possible peculiar elements of a “Cremonese Romanesque”; on the contrary, some historical-artistic coordinates have been traced, coherent with the characteristics of multipolarity and pluricentrism that most likely distinguish medieval territorialization, clients and therefore image models, between the eleventh and thirteenth centuries.
