Church of San Francesco a Lodi
One of the most important historical and artistic heritages in Lombardy, the church of San Francesco was built between 1280-1312 by the Frati Minori. It is a typical monastic construction: the tripartite 1300-1307 facade with wide prothyrum remained uncompleted above the marble rose window that stands out against the pinkish ceramic surface. The 3 nave Latin cross interior is divided by low cylindrical columns and boasts a wonderful collection of frescoes. Pylons, arches and walls are all covered by votive frescoes dating back from the medieval age. Then many decorations and frescoes on the pylons in the nave were the work of the 'Maestro of San Bassiano'. Inspired by these works, a school of painting was created in the church that flourished throughout the 14th c. and made the church one of the highest pictorial expressions of the Middle Ages in Lombardy.
