Overview

Corpus Domini with its 15th-century fa├žade was taken over by Gian Giacomo Monti at the end of the 17th Century. Several artists contributed to the adorning of the building, but due to bombings during the wars only fragments remain of the ornate decoration and stucco work, once so attractive. In what was the chapel of St Catherine of Vigri, who established this location as a place of worship, lies the preserved body of St Catherine. Also, in the first chapel on the right hand side, is the tomb of Luigi Galvai and Laura Bassi Veratti, two famous student from the university of Bologna. There are also excellent works by Denijs Calvaert, Franceschini, Quaini, Giuseppe Mazza, Ludovico Carracci among others.
