Baptistery - Portal of the Redeemer - Parma
Designed by Benedetto Antelami, who also executed the sculptures of the portals, and built between 1196 and 1216, the Baptistery of Parma is one of the most significant monuments of the transition from Romanesque to early Gothic. The octagonal structure, in pink Verona marble, develops in height with four orders of loggias with architraved openings. The Redeemer portal faces west: it is framed by two jambs on which the works of mercy and the six ages of man are represented with the parable of the vineyard.
Also in this case the name of the portal takes its name from the contents of the lunette, which represents the Redeemer, seated on a throne and dressed in a red tunic, a symbol of his divine nature. There is also the figure of St. Paul, which connects to the scenes of the architrave below, where two angels with trumpets awaken the dead called to receive the prize in Paradise or endless punishment in Hell. The frieze above the lunette is dedicated to the twelve apostles.
