Italy Tuscany Churches to see: Freemasonry and mysteries

Ti stupirebbe trovare dei simboli pagani all'interno di una Chiesa medioevale?

Se questa la trovi in Toscana sì, perché non è certo una cosa frequente, specialmente se quella Chiesa é stata eretta intorno al VII° secolo sopra ad un'antica Chiesa romanica, a sua volta eretta sopra un tempio pagano.
Ecco allora che Pieve di San Pietro a Gropina (Loro Ciuffenna, Arezzo), considerato uno dei migliori esempi di architettura romanica in Toscana inizia a diventare affascinante dal momento in cui si trovano delle raffigurazioni zoomorfe nei capitelli e dal pulpito.
