A Romanesque bonsai

The small church has been mentioned since 1049 and the building keeps the proportions and structural elements of the 11th century intact, although probably some parts were redone in the 13th and then during the important reconstruction works after the bombing of 1684. In the plan we can see the pillars that support the main arch of the transept, more robust than the others to support the weight of the vault and the tower.

From the slightly trapezoidal plan, you can sense the rigidity of the context in which the building is inserted. So much so that the apses are shortened, not to clutter the back street, and on the side the walls of the neighboring houses are adherents.
