Cattedrale di San Romolo
(Fiesole, Italy)

The origin of the building dates back to 1028 , when the bishop Jacopo il Bavaro decided to transfer the cathedral , which was until then at the Abbey , within the walls of the city, dedicating it to St. Romulus , evangelizer of Fiesole.
It was enlarged in the thirteenth century, as remembered by an inscription dated 1260 on the fifth column of the right aisle, and again in the fourteenth century by Andrea Corsini . New transformations and abballimenti there were in the following centuries, until in 1,878 - in 1883 the architect Michelangelo Maiorfi did a thorough restoration, which involved the complete reconstruction of the facade. The bell tower dates back to 1213 , but was rebuilt in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries was equipped with the crowning battlements projecting.
