A place between heaven and earth

I knew I should have climbed up the Torrazzo earlier!

On most of my last visits to Cremona the cathedral’s bell tower was shrouded in fog, and although it was very dramatic, the view was never going to be worth the 112m climb.

This time was different, beautiful sunshine and clear skies, I would see for miles around. The Torrazzo is the oldest brick tower still standing, and was finished in 1309.

The cathedral itself is a jewel of Roman, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture, richly decorated with frescoes.

What inspiration before the evening’s concert in Teatro Ponchielli…
