Cremona Baptistery

Local nameBattistero
LocationCremona, Italy

The Cremona Baptistery is a religious edifice in Cremona, northern Italy. It is annexed to the city's Cathedral.

Built in 1167, it is characterized by an octagonal plan, a reference to the cult of St. Ambrose of Milan, symbolizing the Eight Day of Resurrection and, thenceforth, the Baptism.

The edifice mixes Romanesque and Lombard-Gothic styles, the latter evident in the preference for bare brickwork walls. To the 16th century restorations belong the marble cover of some walls, the pavement and the baptismal font and the narthex of the entrance, in Romanesque style, work by Angelo Nani.
