Stradone San Fermo - Verona The Church of Saint Fermo
San Fermo Maggiore is located on the banks of the Adige River near Ponte Navi.
A refined example of the gothic style spread throughout Italy by the Order of the Friars Minor, it is a singular example of the references to French architecture seen especially in the higher part of the building, with spires and ornaments which are quite unusual in this city. Inside, like a treasure chest, one finds the lower Benedictine church, which is a jewel of the local Romanesque architecture.
The story of San Fermo has been an extraordinary testimony throughout the centuries devoted to the two martyrs Fermo and Rustico, who were killed on the banks of the Adige in 304 AD. Their story is well told in the bronze bas-reliefs that decorate the portal, the work of the master, Luciano Minguzzi, in 1997.
