PowerPoint Presentation:

Once known as the city of 100 towers, Pavia today has fine Romanesque and Medieval buildings, a castle, and a vibrant historic center.

Bianca Maria Visconti (1425 – 1468 ) was Duchess of Milan from 1450 to 1468. In May 1448, when Sforza was in Pavia, the Venetians attacked Cremona . According to the chronicles, Bianca Maria donned a suit of parade armor and, along with some troops and the populace, hurried towards the bridge that connected the city to Pavia. She fought in the battle that ensued for the whole day. This episode gained her fame as a "warrior woman". After the Venetian danger had been repulsed, Bianca Maria settled in the Visconti Castle of Pavia, together with a large court. Her good relationships with her Visconti relatives gained popular support, as well as loans and funds, for the fragile new state created by her husband.

The covered bridge (Ponte Coperto, Pontevecchio, Ponte Ticino) The first bridge was built, as Bishop Crispinus’s Chronicle says, in the 2nd century A. D. Then, on the bridge’s sides opened up some shops and small workshops like those we can still see on the Old Bridge in Florence. Being damaged by the frequent floods, the bridge was rebuilt starting from 1351 following Giovanni da Ferrera and Jacopo da Cozzo’s plans.

Saint Theodore’s Church It was originally dedicated to St. Agnes. When the body of St. Theodore, Bishop of Pavia from 736 to 778, was brought here, the church changed its name. As in St. Peter’s the transept’s plan does not exceed the aisles and it stands out just for its different shape and its higher vaults (the octagonal dome is flanked by two barrel-vaults following the Lombard style of Pavia

It is an imposing brick building with a square plan made by will of Galeazzo II Visconti between 1360 and 1365, presumably following architect Bernardo da Venezia’s layout. In the east wing Pasquino Capelli was walled up alive. He was Duke Gian Galeazzo Visconti’s first secretary and he was accused of treason in 1398 after the defeat of the Visconti army in Mantua. Pasquino Capelli was sewn alive into an ox’s skin still warm and then walled up for twenty days till the skin dried up and crushed him to death. After some time Capelli was proved to be innocent.
