Piazza San Giovanni – La place de la cathédrale

  • Piazza San Giovanni – La place de la cathédrale

    Au sud de la Piazza dei Priori se trouve la Piazza San Giovanni, le centre religieux de Volterra. Le Duomo du XIIe siècle vient couronner la place avec sa façade pisane-romane. Officiellement connue sous le nom de Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta, la cathédrale est actuellement fermée pour restauration, probablement jusqu’en septembre 2019. À l’intérieur, les pièces maîtresses sont l’impressionnant plafond à caissons ainsi qu’une collection de pièces d’art datant du Moyen-âge à la Renaissance. La sculpture de la Déposition est une gravure sur bois romane extrêmement rare, simple dans son exécution mais remplie de pathos et de drame. Le Duomo, rénové au XVIe siècle, devrait retourner à sa gloire passée très prochainement. 

    En face de la cathédrale se trouve le Baptistère octogonal, qui aurait été construit sur le site d’un temple païen. Ce Baptistère rayé de noir et blanc, est remarquable par son harmonieuse porte en marbre et de ses élégants fonts baptismaux, sculptés par Sansovino en 1505.

    Adresse: Piazza San Giovanni, Volterra
