We are talking about the famous Abbey of Pomposa, founded in the 7thcentury by Benedictine monks settling on what was once an island between two branches of the River Po.
In the Middle Ages, Pomposa became one of the most prosperous and powerful abbeys in northern Italy, attended by noblemen, pilgrims and illustrious characters such as the monk Guido d’Arezzo, inventor of the musical pentagram.
We will tell you about the golden age of the great monastic complex and we will guide you to visit the Abbey, the Refectory and the Chapter House: the beautiful marble floor of the church and the fourteenth-century frescoes by Giotto’s inspiration will leave you pleasantly surprised and excited.
