Photographer's Note

An interior shot from the impressive Basilica San Petronio in Bologna looking towards the nave & bg ciborium. The exterior facade remains plain & unfinished and offers no inkling of the splendid decor inside. It dates from 1390 AD to 1479 AD with additional construction on the dome in 1514 AD. Work was halted when it was realised the enormous costs that were involved in renovations. There were 2 planned terrorist attacks to blow up this building in 2002 AD & again in 2006 AD because of a medieval painting of Mohammed inside depicted as a heretic being tortured in hell.
