Italy: Province of Pavia
Alleys, streets, monuments, buildings: Pavia offers many paths to the visitor who arrives in town for the first time. Through its squares, avenues and covered bridge one can read Pavia’s history: its grandeur is reflected in the town of today. One special feature in Pavia is the standardised design of all buildings (mostly churches) that were built in the 12th century. Many of those buildings have an architecture using similar stylistic elements, similar types of sculptures and façades that are looking quite similar. It seems like the city council would have had coordinated the works, maybe to distinguish itself to other cities or just for aesthetic reasons.

The Serbian Medieval is unique in its combination of influences and elements of the Western European art and the Byzantine art in the east, due to the special location of the Serbian lands. The dynastic family, the Nemanjas, played a major role in the political life and therefore also had a great influence on the art, which boomed in the late 12th and the early 13th century in Raska.
