    Bolsena is known for a miracle said to have occurred there in 1263, when a Bohemian priest, in doubt about the doctrine of Transubstantiation, reported bleeding from the host he had consecrated at Mass. The Cappella del Corporale in Orvieto Cathedral lies on the north side of the main crossing. It was built between 1350 and 1356 to house the stained corporal of the miracle of Bolsena. The chapel also contains the tomb of St. Pietro Parenzo. The chapel is decorated with frescoes depicting on t…

    Description:

    It is the third edifice built in the same site. The first one was erected after the Edict of Milan in 313 and destroyed by an earthquake on January 3, 1117. Rebuilt in Romanesque style, this was remodeled during the Renaissance beginning in 1551, until 1754; the façade remained unfinished. The appearance of the medieval church can be seen in the frescoes (1375-1380) by Giusto de’ Menabuoi in the annexed Baptistry.

    Description:

    The pulpit of the Siena Cathedral was sculpted between the end of 1265 and November 1268 by Nicola Pisano with the extensive participation of his son Giovanni Pisano and his assistants Arnolfo di Cambio and Lapo di Ricevuto. The pulpit was altered between 1329 and 1542, when the shaped pedestal was added; the compositional and visual sequence of the reliefs was also altered by the repositioning of the pulpit after the Council of Trent. The staircase dates from 1543 and was built by Bartolomeo…

    Description:

    An open portico built at the expense of Pope Pius II (Aeneas Silvius Piccolomini) which faces the Piazza San Martino. The small, three-bay loggia is exceptional for its lack of sculptural detail. Three elegant travertine arches are supported by columns with Corinthian capitals. Across the top is a plain entablature with the inscription PIUS II PONT MAX GENTILIBUS SUI PICCOLOMINEIS.

Work progressed slowly after Giangaleazzo’s death in 1402, but Francesco Sforza revitalized the project after becoming Duke of Milan in 1450.

    Description:

    Before damage and restoration; the side volutes on the facade have been removed.

    The Cathedral (12th century), contains the remains of King Conrad, ruler of Germany and Sicily in the 13th century. The building had to be almost entirely rebuilt in 1919-1920, following the devastating 1908 earthquake, and again in 1943, after a fire triggered by Allied bombings. The original Norman structure can be recognized in the apsidal area. The façade has three late Gothic portals, the central of which p…

    Description:

    Unlike most cathedrals, the cathedral of Perugia has its flank [side] on the city’s main square, facing the Fontana Maggiore and the Palazzo dei Priori. This side has the Loggia di Braccio commissioned by Braccio da Montone (1423), an early Renaissance structure attributed to Fioravante Fioravanti from Bologna. The main façade faces the smaller Piazza Dante and has a baroque portal designed by Pietro Carattoli in 1729. The sturdy campanile was constructed in 1606-1612.
