The Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta and San Sigismondo
At the beginning of '900 Agostino Desirelli, pastor of Rivolta d'Adda, gave the charge to the architect Cesar Nava to restore the church of Santa Maria Assunta and San Sigismondo. Since, across the centuries it underwent influences by Baroque and Neoclassical styles, Desirelli's objective was to restore it to original Romanesque architecture.

 

The works, including the construction of the pronao, lasted about a decade and returned to its former glory a monument that scholars consider one of the most important and interesting examples of Lombard art of the Middle Ages.
