Geocache Description:

Magnetic nanocache, about 2 meters high

La basilica, una delle costruzioni religiose più significative di Verona, è composta da due edifici sovrapposti, ma connessi. La chiesa inferiore fu eretta dai Benedettini tra il 1065 e il 1143, sui resti di un antico sacello dedicato ai SS. Fermo e Rustico; la chiesa superiore, coeva a quella inferiore, fu riedificata in stile gotico nel XIV sec., ad opera dei Francescani che erano subentrati ai monaci precedenti nel 1260. La facciata gotica (ultimata nel 1350 circa) è divisa in due da una galleria d'archetti in parte cieca. La parte inferiore è in tufo. La porta bronzea di Luciano Minguzzi è moderna (1984-88). L'interno della chiesa superiore è ad un'unica ampia navata a croce latina, con altari laterali e cinque absidi ed è coperto da un prezioso soffitto ligneo carenato del 1314.

The actual church dates back to the fourtenth century, but on the place, layer after layer, and various churches were built since fourteenth century on the place on which the two saints undergone martyrdom in 361. The facade is characterized by the typical stripes of yellow sandstone and red bricks together with the beautiful portal contribute to create a building of rare beauty. In the inside the visitor is stunned by the wooden hull-like ceiling and the funeral monument of Nicolò Brenzoni, sculpted by the Florentine Nanni di Bartolo and decorated with an elegant fresco by Pisanello depicting the Annunciation. Lower church St. Fermo and Rustico is basically constituted by two different churches, a lower and an upper one. The lower church is made of evocative cross vaults supported by cross shaped pillars. It still holds many interesting eleventh and thirteenth century frescos.
