Museo di San Petronio
In the Magnificent Basilica di San Petronio , at the back of the left hand nave, there is a small but delightful museum. This museum still holds the plans for the completion of the church's monumental façade. This project, carried out by great experts Francesco Terribilia and Baldassarre Peruzzi, is testimony to just how important the completion of this church was. The church was built to highlight the local council's religious and civil authority, despite the fact that this pre-Renaissance masterpiece was never completed, leaving the marble base unfinished. For a clear idea of how exactly the plans progressed, there is a model by Arduino on display, of how the church looked in 1515. The collection also contains the instruments used by GD Cassini, in the tracing of the Meridian line, inside the Basilica. You can also check out the vestments and religious clothing, from the 16th to 18th Centuries, jewelry from the 1300s, statues and bas-reliefs.
