Chiesa di Santa Maria in Cosmedin, Roma - Lazio

The Basilica of Saint Mary in Cosmedin or de Schola Graeca is a minor basilica church in Rome, Italy. It is located in the rione of Ripa.
In the portico of the church, on the north side, can be found La Bocca della VeritÓ, an ancient sculpture thought to be a drain covering. A legend states that, if a person places his hand inside the mouth ("bocca") and then swears falsely, the mouth will close and sever the hand. There is no attested case of such an event taking place.

The church's bell tower is the tallest medieval belfry in Rome.

The current interior of S. Maria in Cosmedin has a nave with two aisles: these are divided by four pilasters and eighteen ancient columns. Built into the side walls, some of the old columns of the Statio Annonae are visible. Other fragments of the ancient building can be seen in the crypt. Paintings from the 8th-12th centuries, in three layers, are preserved in the upper part of the nave and in the triumphal arch. The church has a very fine Cosmatesque pavement. The schola cantorum is from the 13th century, while the main altar is a red granite piece from 1123. The Easter candelabrum is also from the 13th century.

The sacristy houses a precious 8th-century mosaic fragment brought here from the Old St. Peter's Basilica. Of the 18th-century restoration, the Crucifix Chapel and the Baptistry can be seen today.


In a side altar on the left of the church is kept the flower crowned skull attributed to St Valentine.

Necropoli di Mesu e Montes, Ossi - Sardegna

The underground necropolis of Mesu 'e Montes is an archaeological site located in the town of Ossi, Sassari province, which is about 10 km. The complex is carved on a limestone ridge on the southern slopes of Mount Mamas, overlooking Mount Mannu, in a very high position (about 430 m s.l.m.) that allows a wide domain of the valley below.

The first report of the necropolis was by the archaeologist Ercole Contu that ,between 1968 and 1969, identified seventeen domus de Janas; he noted the great scientific interest of the discovery and , as a superintendent, he asked and obtained the immediate imposition of archaeological restrictions in the affected area. The site was then excavated in 1985.

The necropolis consists of 18 domus de Janas, all multicellular (in two of them there are up to 12 rooms), adorned with pilasters, panels, false doors, bulls' heads, chevrons and other convoluted reasons or wolf teeth. Seven tombs reproduce very effectively the structural peculiarities of prenuragic housing: single or double pitched roofs, horizontal or sloping, with or without central and side joists, supported or not by pillars, all carved into the rock.
The necropolis covers a chronological period between the late Neolithic and Middle Bronze Age.

The beauty of the goodness and taste. Emilia Romagna

General de Gaulle once told about the difficulty of governing a country like France which has 300 varieties of cheeses.
We can surely say that Italy is a little more difficult to govern, as the Italian cheeses are more than 600.
Italians however all agree on one thing:
from eight centuries the king of cheeses of Italy is the one and only Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.

Battistero, Padova - Veneto

The Padua Baptistery, dedicated to St. John the Baptist, is a religious building found on the Piazza del Duomo next to the cathedral in Padua. Preserved inside is one of the most important fresco cycles of the 14th century, a masterpiece by Giusto de Menabuoi.

The construction of the baptistery began in the 12th century, probably on top of an existing structure; it underwent various reworkings in the following century, and was consecrated by Guido, patriarch of Grado, in 1281. Between 1370 and 1379 it was restored and adapted as a mausoleum for prince Francesco il Vecchio da Carrara and his wife, Fina Buzzaccarini. The latter oversaw the decorative work, entrusting it to Giusto de' Menabuoi (whose burial site was later found outside the building). With the fall of the House of Da Carrara in 1405, Venetian soldiers demolished the grand burial monuments and covered the numerous emblems of Francesco il Vecchio with green paint. After various partial restorations in the 20th century, the work is currently awaiting an important full restoration.

Battistero, Parma - Emilia Romagna

he Baptistery of Parma is a religious edifice in Parma, northern Italy. Architecturally, the baptistery of Parma Cathedral marks a transition between the Romanesque and Gothic styles, and it is considered to be among the most important Medieval monuments in Europe.
The Baptistery was commissioned to Benedetto Antelami by the City Council of Parma in 1196. The outside of pink Verona Marble is octagonal. The inside contains sixteen arches, forming alcoves each containing a painted scene. All these are 13th and 14th century frescoes and paintings. The most striking part of the Baptistery, however, is its painted domed ceiling. Sixteen rays come out of the center of the ceiling, which each correspond to the arches.

However, problems were posed over time as the paintings were not true frescoes. The paint would start to come off the walls and would be literally hanging on. Due to this, the Baptistery had to be painstakingly consolidated and restored with syringes and spatulas.

Battistero di San Giovanni, Siena - Toscana

The Baptistry of St. John is a religious building in Siena, Italy. It is located in the square with the same name, near the final spans of the choir of the city's cathedral.

It was built between 1316 and 1325 by Camaino di Crescentino, the father of Tino di Camaino. The fašade, in Gothic style, is unfinished in the upper part, such as the apse of the cathedral.

In the interior, the rectangular hall, divided into a nave and two aisles by two columns, contains a hexagonal baptismal font in bronze, marble and vitreous enamel, realized in 1417-1431 by the main sculptors of the time: Donatello (panel of "Herod's Banquet" and statues of the "Faith" and "Hope"), Lorenzo Ghiberti, Giovanni di Turino, Goro di Neroccio and Jacopo della Quercia (statue of John the Baptist and other figures). The panels represent the Life of John the Baptist, and include:

"Annunciation to Zacharias" by Jacopo della Quercia (1428-1429)
"Birth of John the Baptist" by Giovanni di Turino (1427)
"Baptist Preaching" by Giovanni di Turino (1427)
"Baptism of Christ" by Ghiberti (1427)
"Arrest of John the Baptist" by Ghiberti and Giuliano di Ser Andrea
"The Feast of Herod" by Donatello (1427)
These panels are flanked on the corners by six figures, two by Donatello ("Faith" and "Hope") in 1429; three by Giovanni di Turino ("Justice", "Charity" and "Providence", 1431); and the "Fortitude" is by Goro di Ser Neroccio (1431).

The marble shrine on the font was designed by Jacopo della Quercia between 1427 and 1429. The five "Prophets" in the niches and the marble statuette of "John the Baptist" at the top are equally by his hand. Two of the bronze angels are by Donatello, three by Giovanni di Turino (the sixth is by an unknown artist).

The frescoes are by Vecchietta and his school (1447-1450, Articles of Faith, Prophets and Sibyls), Benvenuto di Giovanni, the school of Jacopo della Quercia e, perhaps, one by Piero Orioli. Vecchietta also painted two scenes on the wall of the apse, representing the Flagellation and the Road to Calvary. Michele di Matteo da Bologna painted in 1477 the frescoes on the vault of the apse.

[QUOTE=FAK;127277706]Ercolano, Campania

Herculaneum was allegedly founded by Hercules coming back from one of his Twelve Labours. Out of legend, it was most likely founded by the Oscans, an Italic tribe of the 8th century BC, and later became part of both the Etruscan and Samnite dominions. Under the control of the Romans, the city was a renowned seaside resort where some of the richest Roman citizens spent their summer vacations. It was built according to the regular model of Hippodamus of Miletus with a grid of crossing Decumans and Cardos. The houses are elegant and large as well as public buildings that are abundant and large compared to the small number of inhabitants (about 5,000).

In AD 62 the town suffered major damage by a violent earthquake and works of restoration were still going on when on 24 August of AD 79 Mt. Vesuvius, erupted and completely buried the city under a deep layer of hot mud and other volcanic material. Unlike neighboring Pompeii, the citizens of Herculaneum died of thermal shock from the extremely hot pyroclastic surges, rather than buried under heavy ash. ( wikipedia)

I tried to do some research on the internet but I found nothing.
As an architect I think that those rusted bars you are arguing about must be part of an old and " wrong" consolidation intervention with the use of reinforced concrete made, may be, in the aftermath of World War II, as in other european countries.
In this period of economic recovery, in addition to reconstruction and construction of houses and factories by using reinforced concrete, the attention also turned to the restoration and consolidation of the architectural and cultural heritage. Sometimes these works were made with these " wrong" tecniques, that today wouldn't be used anymore.
Sorry but at present I can not tell you more. I'm sorry.

Bosco Fontana, Lombardia

Gonzaga Family 's Hunting Lodge.
It was built in the late sixteenth century by the architect Giuseppe Dattaro, prefect of the Gonzaga buildings, commissioned by the Duke of Mantua Vincenzo Gonzaga and destined to "hunting house." Built on the model of a small castle, it has many towers at the four corners. On the larger side stands a large loggia with three arches, surmounted by a tympanum. Following the dismissal of Dattaro, the construction was completed by his successor, Antonio Maria Viani, who surrounded it with wide moat.

It is located within the Bosco Fontana Nature Reserve, owned by the State Forestry Corps. Since 1921 has been declared a national monument.

S'Ortu Mannu, Villamassargia - Sardegna

The oasis called "S'Ortu mannu" (the great garden) covers an area of ​​about 13 hectares at the foot of Gioiosa Guardia Castle in Villamassargia , which is about 4 km.
This is a forest with ancient olive trees, grafted between 1300 and 1600, still visible in the majesty of the logs that are robust, knotted and twisted, protected by thick and voluminous green foliage.

Among these trees the most interesting is the one called Sa Reina (in Sardinian "the queen"), with a trunk circumference of more than 16 meters, a true monument of nature for grandeur and historical significance.

The park's origins are rooted in the Middle Ages, when the Benedictine monks planted the first group of "S'Ortu mannu" olive trees.
Today the olive grove is a natural park that has about 700 centuries-old olive trees, many of which, until recently, were the property of citizens. With the passage of "S'Ortu mannu" to the legal responsibility of the Municipality of Villamassargia, every olive tree has been attributed to almost every family of the village. Each one keeps a copy of the oasis, identified with the letters on trunks indicating the initials of the householder. "S'Ortu mannu" is also the theater of the traditional event that takes place every last Sunday of October to Villamassargia: its Days of Olives. This is an interesting opportunity for those who love precious oil production that sees in the territory of Villamassargia his place of election.

Nuraghe Seruci, Gonnesa - Sardegna

The nuraghe Seruci is an important archaeological site, located in the municipality of Gonnesa, in the Iglesiente region of Sardinia.
The nuraghe is of the complex type, it consists of a central tower surrounded by five other towers, some of which are in good condition. The towers have their summit collapsed but originally their tops were crowned with battlements in stone.

From the nuraghe, being located in a hill of strategic importance, is possible to observe the entire surrounding area.
The nuraghe is surrounded by a village, one of the largest in Sardinia, with about a hundred huts grouped in "residential areas" divided by narrow streets. The huts are circular and in some of them is possible to see the use of architectural solutions that are rarely found in the other nuraghic villages; for example the use of partition walls inside of the huts and the addition of other environments of varying shape around the usual living environment.

At the center of the village is located a hut of vast size that probably was the meeting hut of the community.

Near the village and the nuraghe are also present at least three giants' tomb, the typical burials of nuragic Sardinia.

Basilica della Santissima TrinitÓ di Saccargia, Codrongianos - Sardegna

The Basilica della Santissima TrinitÓ di Saccargia (English: "Basilica of the Holy Trinity of Saccargia") is a church in the comune of Codrongianos, northern Sardinia, Italy. It is the most important Romanesque site in the island. The construction is entirely in local stone (black basalt and white limestone), with a typical appearance of Tuscan Romanesque style.

The church was finished in 1116 over the ruins of a pre-existing monastery, and consecrated on October 5 of the same year. Its construction was ordered by the giudice (judge) of Torres. It was entrusted to Camaldolese monks who here founded an abbey. It was later enlarged in Pisane style, including the addition of the tall bell tower. The portico on the fašade is also probably a late addition, and is attributed to workers from Lucca.

The church was abandoned in the 16th century, until it was restored and reopened in the early 20th century.
