Como, Basilica of Saint Fedele
It rises on the homonymous square in the heart of the town. This beautiful Romanesque church was built on a paleochristian basilica of the 6th century dedicated to S. Eufemia. On Via Vittorio Emanuele, note the polygonal dome, the pentagonal colonnaded apse and the right portal decorated with evocative ancient sculptures. The interior houses many remarkable works, most notably: two stoups from the primitive church of S. Eufemia, late 14th century and early 15th century frescoes; wall paintings by a Gaudenzio Ferrari's student depicting a 'Wedding of the Virgin', a 'Nativity', an 'Annunciation to the Shepherds' and an 'Epiphany' (left apse); the Cappella del Crocifisso (right apse) with works by Carlo Innocenzo Carloni (canvases) and his brother Diego (stuccoes) and the 17th century frescoes by Isidoro Bianchi, a Morazzone's student, on the vaulting.
