San Giovanni Evangelista

San Giovanni Evangelista Review

Beyond the elaborate Baroque facade of San Giovanni Evangelista, the Renaissance interior reveals several works by Correggio: St. John the Evangelist (in the lunette above the door in the left transept) is considered among his finest. Also in this church (in the second and fourth chapels on the left) are works by Parmigianino, a contemporary of Correggio's. Once seen, Parmigianino's long-necked Madonnas are never forgotten.
