S.Bernardino, Minor Friar's convent is the symbol of the late come of the Renaissance art in Verona, different from Firenze.
Even if it's dated at the half of the XV century, the church is an example of Gothic Architecture.
In S. Bernardino, in addition to the supplier of a simple hut facade, is the marble frame of the main door that attenuates the presence Gothic, offering an image of classical measure and composure. The strange plant which the church aisle to a more side by side, right, a small aisle on which face all the chapels, was created by a modification of a first plant to aisle.

 

Example of a church community is padana S. Lorenzo: the Romanesque style with two strong towers front of tuff masonry and brick bands alternate, constructed to access the galleries. The interior is dominated by the presence of the same extended galleries above the aisles and his relatives to a field that develops on the front, above the nartace.
