Church of SS. Pietro e Paolo
Switzerland

Chiesa dei SS. Pietro e Paolo, ai margini del nucleo.

Una delle più antiche della valle Capriasca, contenente affreschi romanici di grande importanza iconografica.

La costruzione mediaevale, databile al X-XI sec., è costruita sul sedime di una primitiva chiesa biabsidata dell'VIII-IX sec., del tipo di quella di S. Martino a Mendrisio.

Indagini archeologiche 1968, restauro 1968-72.

A des., accanto al portico del XVII sec., s'innalza lo slanciato campanile romanico a tre piani ritmati da specchiature definite da due o tre archetti, XI sec.; il quarto piano e il tetto sono posteriori.

La navata intonacata è conclusa dal coro rettangolare eretto in epoca barocca. Soffitto moderno a capriate scoperte sulla navata, illuminata internamente da quattro monofore.

Nel coro voltato a botte: tela della Vocazione di S. Pietro, XVIII sec. Pareti della navata ornati da affreschi romanici in fregi a meandri e motivi ornamentali ondulati, fine XII sec.: sulla parete N, Marie al sepolcro, Crocifissione con i due ladroni e, inferiormente, la città fortificata di Milano, uno struzzo e un'altra scena non più identificabile.

Sulla parete opposta: Presentazione al tempio, Fuga in Egitto; nel registro inferiore: Madonna in trono, XII sec.; sullo zoccolo, frammento raffigurante un cane che rincorre un animale.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
