San Giovanni Battista Decollato parish

The Church of San Giovanni Battista in Firenzuola is situated on the ruins of the ancient church, destroyed during the Second World War. The new building was created by Carlo Scarpa and Edoardo Detti; inaugurated in 1966, it has modern and essential style. The church guards a rich patrimony of sculptures in ceramics by Salvatore Cipolla and the Crucifix of Camaggiore, wooden sculpture of the 12th century, s an important Romanesque testimony in Central Italy. Tel: +39 055 098 1994

Immersed in a vast green reserve rich in flora and fauna, we find St. Pietro in Moscheta Abbey, which holds an extraordinary portico. Founded in 1034 by the Blessed Rodolfo dei Galigai, of the Vallombrosian order, it is said that Galigai constructed a convent that was much too big and that it was destroyed by the flood of a nearby river, which swelled suddenly as a result of the prayers of the humble S. Giovanni Gualberto, founder of the new order.

In Cornacchia stands St. Giovanni Battista Decollato Parish Church on the important Medieval road with a typically Romanesque structure very similar to St. Agata Parish Church, on the opposite side of the Apennine watershed. It was restored in the 19th century and inside preserves early 20th century frescos. Tel. +39 055 8149459
