Discovering Monteverdi's hometown


The program is available at the following link

Saturday, 17th June – 10 am
Sant’Omobono’s church, from the Middle Ages to modern times
A focus tour dedicated to one of the oldest churches in Cremona, the one where, according to the tradition, Omobono Tucenghi died in 1197, becoming the city's patron saint, in search of architectural and artistic traces ranging from Romanesque to Rococo. A treasure with unique traits.

Meeting point: 9.45 am, in front of the church
Reservation required up to 48 hrs before


Sunday, 19th June – 7.30 pm
Sant’Agostino’s church: a Perugino in Cremona (and much more)
A focus tour to discover an ancient Cremona church with only apparently sober and austere features: the medieval building in fact preserves the signs of art and history ranging from the Late Gothic to the full Baroque, passing through unusual iconographies (such as that of the Mystical winepress) and masterpieces of national relevance (such as the Perugino altarpiece). Not to be missed.

Meeting point: 7.15, in front of the church
Reservation required up to 48 hrs before


Saturday 24 June – 5.30 pm and Sunday 25 June – 5.30pm
Palazzo Guazzoni Zaccaria: a rediscovered treasure
