  San Peter Church
by Gillianina
 
 

It was built starting from an original nucleus in Romanesque Style. It is now the seat of the Bishop´s Throne of Bologna. The bell tower is of particular importance; it dates back to the 12th century and was built by Mastro Alberto. In 1426 the old wood dome was replaced by one of bricks with a leaden facing. The central nave and the side chapels are pianted by the greatest bolognaise artists, such as Ludovico Carracci, Prospero Fontana and Donato Creti.
