Declared a Unesco 'World Heritage Site', the Cathedral of Modena inaugurated the splendid flowering of municipal civilisation. Thanks to the work of Lanfranco and the Maestri Campionesi, Italian architecture acquired a new language, consisting of sober and harmonious volumetric and spatial scansion, while the sculpture of Wiligelmo and his followers, cast in synthetic and powerful forms, reached peaks of touching narrative capacity and extraordinary expressive power.
A guide to one of the highest and most significant examples of Romanesque architecture and sculpture in Italy, in a new edition with more than 150 colour illustrations.
