The interior also shows the cycle of months and seasons and the respective zodiac signs, all sculpted by Antelami. The building is covered with a dome, and has semicircular niches and, in the upper part, two loggias. There is a splendid cycle of paintings in tempera from the second half of the 13th Century, and in the apse are frescoes from the Emilian school of the 14th Century. Call for more information.
