The Genoa Romanesque stile

The six columns with black and white circles with acanthus leaves in white marble are the protagonists of the first sight inside the church. Added in the twelfth century to the transept which, with the apses, is part of the first building, from the eleventh century. The windows, opened in the following period in the wall of the transept towards the nave, emphasize the part of the apse, uniformly black thanks to the Promontorio stone.

The photo also highlights the slate and marble flooring, again typical of Genoa, which completes the overall bichromatic effect.
