A thousand years in miniature
In just over eight square kilometres you will move through a thousand years of history: from a Roman villa, turned into a place of ancient Christian worship, to an eleventh century Romanesque church. These great leaps in time are possible in Palazzo Pignano, a truly interesting town in the Crema countryside that allows study of how Christianity spread outside towns and cities. An unexpectedly moving experience, made more so because it is still one of Lombardy’s hidden jewels, a chance to walk in the footsteps of the archaeologists and experts who came before you on this adventure, including a trip to the local Antiquarium and its display of archaeological finds.
