Itineraries: Medieval Piacenza
Piacenza in the Middle Ages was one of the most important European centres: it was a transit as well as a communication way, where ancient roads and the river Po met. Commercial and economic businesses were thriving, large religious and lay building sites were started by important schools, among which those of Wiligelmo and Nicolò, two of the most important Romanesque sculptors. This was the historical period when the current urban layout and development started. The most remarkable pieces of architecture belong to the Middle Ages, among them several churches and the Municipal palace, known as Gotico.
