Crocifisso del Perdono, XV secolo
Crucifix of Forgiveness, 15th century
A polychrome, wooden Cross dating from the fifteenth century hangs in the fifth chapel on the right-hand side of the Basilica of Bagno di Romagna. The work is characterised by a raw and intense realism and shows Northern European influences; the restoration undertaken in 1990 has brought to light the quality of this work. During the centuries-old "Day of Forgiveness" that is celebrated on the second Friday in March, this cross is carried in solemn procession through the streets of Bagno di Romagna.
It hangs in the Basilica di S. Maria Assunta in Piazza Ricasoli.
