Lovely church with much to see on the inside. Statue of the Madonna on the outside will surely draw your attention.

While in Bologna, Strolling the streets we saw this church. The art depicted over the front door entrance interested me, unfortunately it was not open and I could not get a glimpse of what treasures it held inside.
