The St. Zeno Major Basilica (or St. Zenone), in Verona, belongs to the maximum summits of Italian Romanic style, and it is famous for the wonderful circular rose-window that opens on the facade. It is called “The wheel of Fortuny” for the masterpieces conserved inside, most notably the altar piece of St. Zeno, painted by Andrea Mantegna. On 2th may 921 the holy body of Zeno was translated inside the crypt. The Basilica has three levels and the lowest was commissioned by Bishop Raterio, who obtained in 967 from the Imperator Ottone I the necessary fundings for its construction. The church survived at the earthquake of Verona in 1117, but it has been renovated by architects Giovanni and Nicolò da Ferrara.
