    Description :

    “Modena’s superlative Duomo rises alongside the old Roman Via Aemilia (now Via Emilia). One of the region’s greatest Romanesque buildings, it was founded by Countess Matilda of Tuscany, ruler of Modena in the 11th century. It was designed by Lanfranco and dedicated to San Geminiano, the city’s patron saint, whose stone coffin lies under the choir. Its most noticeable feature is the Torre Ghirlandina, a perilously leaning tower begun at the same time as the Duomo and completed two centuries later. It once housed the Secchia, a wooden bucket whose 1325 theft from Bologna allegedly sparked a war between the two cities.”
