The parish church of San Pietro a Gropina
The present-day building of the Parish Church of Gropina was erected between the 12th and 13th centuries over an existing Lombardian worship site dating back to the 8th-9th  centuries which, in turn, had taken the place of an early-Christian church of the 5th-6th centuries AD. The pulpit, which can be linked to the Lombard period, is an extraordinary work of sculptural art that relates the dictates of the ancient scriptures: the lion for Saint Mark, the book (or parchment) for Saint Matthew and the eagle for Saint John.
