While visiting Parma for the day from Bologna we came across the Roman Catholic Church of San Pietro in Piazza Giuseppe Garibaldi. The church was first mentioned in historical records in 955, then destroyed and rebuilt by Cristoforo Zaneschi in the popular 15th century Gothic style. Today’s Neoclassic style structure was built between 1707 and 1762, by Architect Ennemond Alexander Petitot, who decorated the outside walls with the papal symbols of the tiara and keys resting on a garland of leaves hung in a curve above the main entrance made from stucco by Benigno Bossi. During the days of the Napoleonic government in 1811 the church was formal disbanded then re-consecrated in 1852 only to be suppressed again in 1867 by Napoleon III, the nephew of Napoleon I, with his liberal reforms. Unfortunately, due to it being Monday the church was closed so we were unable to see Giovanni Antonio Vezzani frescoes on the nave ceiling or the painting by Alessandro Mazzola of the Madonna and child with Saints Peter and Paul. TIP: If you do manage to enter the church please ware appropriate clothing Thank you.

We walked around the church soon after 9am. The church is beautiful and there is some stunning artwork in there. Worth viewing.
