The Taull church in Catalonia really shows the pan-european influence of the Lombard Romanesque style, also called first romanesque. This style is quintessentially the main language of the Holy Roman Empire, and both north and south of the Alps, in southern Germany and in Northern Italy, we see the rising of the ribbed crossing vault to cover churches' naves that from the year 1000 on became wider and wider. In these realities, bricks are the main building material and they are used extensively with a freedom of design and a creativity that is just overwhelming. In Lombardy, for instance, there is no difference between romanesque and gothic, the latter being just the extreme consequence of the first. In the romanesque era, the buildings started to be wider, and in the gothic era, the building started to become taller. But the idea is the same.

We can appreciate it in a very interesting cathedral in the Po valley, in the culturally and artistically Lombard city of Piacenza, now being part of the Emilia-Romagna region, it shows one of the finest lombard romanesque building, with a nave actually higher than many gothic cathedral, some 28 meters! The "campanile", or bell tower, is 71 meters tall.

The cathedral was built between the years 1122 and 1233. In the year 1160 was already completed the apsis, the transept, the crypt and the side naves.

One of the things that struck me in this thread is that I didn't realize the number of Romanesque churches, even if Milan only is considered. Of course during art history courses, we learn about the most important of them (or that are considered the most important by art historians).
