This is the funeral chapel of the Lupi di Soragna family with an interior decorated with frescoes by Jacopo Avenzo, who painted them in 1378-84. These are among the most impressive examples of 14th century Italian painting.
In the early aears og the 19th centurythe Oratory was trurned into the prison by Napoleon Bonaparte. The frescoes was restored in 1995, in the occasion of the eight births centenary of the Saint' Anthony.
Since taking the pictures inside the Oratory isn't allowed, I took this one from outside.
The Oratory of Saint George, which stands next to the basilica, founded in 1377 as a mortuary chapel by Raimondino Lupi, son of the Marquis of Soragna, was frescoed in 1378 by the masters Altichiero of Zevio and Jacopo Avanzi, both faithful pupils of the school of Giotto.
