The Cathedral of Modena and

the Abbey of Nonantola

speak to us by means of their figures.

A universal language, always alive,

made even clearer and more topical

by these handy booklets.

Three doors were planned in the original design of the Cathedral, created in the early 12th century: the Main Door (at the centre of the façade), the so-called Door of the Fish Shop (on the Cathedral northern flank near the Ghirlandina Tower) and the Baptism Door, also known as the Princes’ Door (on the southern flank towards the square). They share similar characteristics: the same architectural structure and dense figurative and symbolic depictions, which convey numerous messages intertwined in a single narration. Ancient prophets, the first apostles, farmers, artisans, Arthurian knights, real and fantastic beasts and rich vegetation inhabit these portals and attract the faithful as they enter or exit the Cathedral. In the background, there is the mysterious and shining statement of Jesus Christ: “I am the Door”.
