Façade of Monza Cathedral
Description: The massive façade is divided into five parts by six lisens. Each of the latter is surmounted by a tabernacle housing a statue. The façade has several mullioned windows with, in the centre, a large rose window framed by a motif inspired to Roman antique ceilings, decorated by rosettes, masks and star motifs.
The façade is considered Romanesque in the structure and Gothic in the decoration. Typical of the latter is the porch, with 14th century gargoyles on the sides and the 13th century lunette with the 16h century busts of Theodelinda and King Agilulf. Over the porch is the statue of St. John the Baptist (15th century). Over the portal is depicted the Baptism of Jesus, assisted by St. Peter, the Holy Virgin, St. Zachary and St. Paul. In the upper section is portrayed Theodelinda offering to St. John the Baptist the Iron Crown, together by his kneeling husband Agilulf and their son Adaloald and Gundeberga (wikipedia.org)
