Overview

A sacred building probably dating from the 13th Century, it was deconsecrated and rebuilt at the end of the 17th Century by Tommaso Martelli, who imposed late-Renaissance architectural tropes on the existing structure. After the damamge it suffered from bombings in the wars, it was acquired by the Fondazione della Cassa di Risparmio di Bologna which transformed it into a place of great artistic importance. It now hosts conferences, concerts, meetings and prestigious art exhibitions. A very important exhibition of urban architecture which takes place very three years, called "The Other Modernity" is currently in progress. There is also a very interesting archive which can be consulted, featuring details of works of art by Francesco Francia, Bartolomeo Cesi, Donato Creti, Crespi, Carracci, Gandolfi, Bigari, Fantuzzi, and Morandi, as well as on ceramics, manuscripts, a numismatic section containing thousands of coins from the Bolognese mint.
