The octagonal baptistery in the city of Parma was built by the order of the city consul in 1196. The author of the project is the master Benedetto Angels. The structure was made of pink Viennese marble, which was also decorated with exquisite sculptures and reliefs. The baptistery is an example of a harmonious and grandiose allegory.
The building is decorated with symbols of 12 signs of the zodiac, months and seasons. Today, the building contains frescoes dated XIII – XIV centuries.
