The barbaric splendour: the Lombard treasures Unesco World Heritage Site

40 min.



The Lombards have left precious memories on Italian territory. The Basilica of San Giovanni Battista represents the spiritual and historical heart of Monza: its foundation was wanted by Queen Teodolinda, who was a great patron of the city. Inside it is kept a treasure of inestimable value and beauty: in addition to the famous Iron Crown it preserves relics, goldsmithery, sculptures, Renaissance tapestries and a splendid 15th century cycle of the Zavattari family dedicated to the Longobard queen.
