Once the seat of a small Etruscan village, it began its life as a town in the 10th century taking its name from the Holy Bishop of Modena who saved the town from the Barbarian invasion. The town increased in wealth and developed greatly during the Middle Ages thanks to the "Via Francigena," the trading and pilgrim's route that crosses it. Such prosperity leads to the flourishing of works of art to adorn the churches and monasteries. The architecture of the city was influenced by Pisa, Siena and Florence.
