Itineraries: Renaissance Piacenza

 

During the first half of the 16th century Piacenza became part of the Farnese Duchy, thus approaching, with a slight delay compared to Lombardy, the Italian Renaissance period by commissioning works to the most important artists at the time. Raffaello (1483-1520), Giovanni Antonio Sacchi known as Pordenone (1484-1539), Alessio Tramello (1455-1535), Jacopo Barozzi known as Vignola (1507-1573), and many others enriched churches and stately mansions with precious masterpieces. They also renovated the urban city network aspect with the elegant lines that are typical of the Italian style in the 15th and 16th century.
