Built by architect Giovan Battista Aleotti (1546-1636): extending the first floor of the Palazzo della Pilotta of Parma, a large room designed as an exhibition Antiquarium and as a venue for various events and tournaments.

Baptistery of Parma

The Baptistry of Parma.

The middle of the painted ceiling.

The Baptistery of Parma (ItalianBattistero di Parma) is a religious edifice in the heart of Parma, northern Italy. The baptistery of the Parma Cathedral, is considered to be a transition between Romanesque and Gothic architecture, and is one of the most important Medieval monuments in Europe.

The Baptistery was commissioned to Benedetto Antelami by the City Council of Parma in 1196.

The external construction is a rare example of pink Verona Marble is both complex and delicate by virtue of its octagonal form.

The Fresco Restoration

The interior suffered a little over time as the murals were not true infused frescoes. Rather they were secco wall paintings (true fresco painting is executed onto the wet lime cement plaster forming a strong bond). A secco painting, by contrast, is made onto a dry surface. The pigments therefore require a binding medium, such as egg (tempera), glue or oil to fix the pigment to the wall.  This pigment in this case was drying out and in disrepair for several centuries.

Happily the Baptistery has now been meticulously restored and you can visit it with us to see the stunning results.
