Santi Bartolomeo e Gaetano

Local nameChiesa dei Santi Bartolomeo e Gaetano
LocationBologna, Italy

Santi Bartolomeo e Gaetano is a Renaissance style, Roman Catholic church in central Bologna; it is located near the Due Torri adjacent to the Strada Maggiore.

A church at the site dedicated to St. Bartolomeo had existed since the 5th century; it was likely built atop an even older church and housed Benedictine monks till the 16th century. The church was designed by Giovanni Battista Falcetti with elaboration by Agostino Barelli, and owes the awkward facade to arising at the site of a palace begun by Andrea da Formigine in 1517 and commissioned by a member of the Gozzadini. The project, which is seen in the single-story portico along the exterior, was interrupted after the death of the patron, soon after completion of what became the side portico.
