The Assumption Cathedral of Moscow, finished in 1479 thanks to the will of Zar Ivan III, founder of the russian empire, was designed by the Italian - Bologna native - architect Aristotele Fioravanti. Inside, the icon of God’s Mother by Vladimir is well conserved. In front of the cathedral once took place the main moments of the political and religious life of the russian empire, as - for example - the coronation of the zar and the election of the prelate. This cathedral is considered the oldest church of the Kremlin complex which today, among others, hosts the palace of the russian president and still exercises an incredible appeal on the millions of tourist who visit the city every year.
