Dedicata a Santa Maria Assunta, la cattedrale di Cremona viene edificata agli inizi del XII secolo e rappresenta, dal punto di vista artistico, uno dei principali e più insigni esempi di architettura religiosa del Nord Italia. Domina la piazza del Comune, fulcro e cuore dell'antica città medioevale. Si trova nel punto più alto della città formando con il Torrazzo e il Battistero il polo della vita religiosa. Affianca il duomo la torre campanaria comunemente chiamata Torrazzo. Alta oltre 112 metri è frutto della sovrapposizione di due strutture diverse. La prima, edificata probabilmente nel 1267, è una torre romanica con merlatura guelfa. La seconda è costituita da due tamburi ottagonali (ghirlanda) collocati alla sommità della torre. Si ipotizza che la costruzione sia stata terminata nel 1305. La palla e la croce poste alla sommità della cupola risalgono al XVII secolo. Suggestiva è la salita del Torrazzo dalla cui sommità si gode uno stupendo panorama della città e del fiume Po. La cella campanaria racchiude 7 campane fuse nel 1744. Ognuna è dedicata ad un santo, compreso il protettore della città, S. Omobono. I loro suoni formano un concerto in la bemolle. L'orologio astronomico del campanile viene installato nel 1583 da Francesco Divizioli in sostituzione di uno più antico e a seguito della Riforma Gregoriana del calendario. Il meccanismo perfettamente funzionante è quello originale, mentre il quadrante è stato più volte ridipinto. La versione attuale risale al 1970. L'orologio è in grado di indicare il moto degli astri, le fasi lunari e il moto del sole. (Tratto da www.cattedraledicremona.it) Sigma 17-50 f.2.8 a 17 mm. So che la distorsione prospettica è evidente ma l'angolazione mi sembra lo stesso suggestiva.

Beautiful and demanding representation of the cathedral for the most high Torrazzo, as you have rightly pointed out, but I agree on the objective beauty of these beautiful architectures. Beautiful colors.

Congratulations Guglielmo, beautiful colors in the revival of this beautiful cathedral that I did not know.
You came back for a nap to also understand the cross on the Torrazzo, I guess you did not want to tilt little more the camera to limit the deformation.
Congratulations also for the exhaustive caption.
Hello

Thanks Sergio, in fact I did the balancing to make the shot! The cathedral is also worth a visit for the interiors. You're absolutely right in that case the perspective distortion would be increased.
Thanks again, your advice and positive comments make me very happy.
Now I provide you to post a picture of Messina... ;-)

I had the opportunity to go up on the Torrazzo and-I agree-the hike really deserves, like the whole town of Cremona also.
Beautiful Your shot that makes justice to the grandeur of the monument.
Congratulations, Guglielmo!
Hello! :-) :-P

Thanks Rosario I do not hide that I was dizzy: fsmile. I'm glad you liked it and I confess that it is a click "nature", actually difficult but as I wrote I liked the point of recovery and I dared to publish it.
Thank you also for the attention you devote to my work, I am flattered.
Hello and I wish you to spend a serene Sunday Guglielmo
