Description
In documents from 1302, 1308 and 1538 it is indicated as being a daughter-house of the Toano Parish. It would appear that a landslide brought down the antique parish. Parochial visits suggest various restorations were done and they often describe the buildings as being in bad condition. The present day building is probably due to the munificence of the feudal vassals Count Sassi of Quara. In 1707 the round tower with two bells and a finely sculpted cornice attributed to the Cecati were recalled. Near the building in 1730 a new rectory was made. In 1845 the church still had its antique covering of wooden plates. In 1906 the construction was completely restructured according to a design plan by Pries Don Modesto Vezzosi and by land surveyor Geremia Fioroni from Costabona. The painter Vandelli from Sassuolo did the inside painting.
The church dedicated to S. Peter Apostle has a sloping façade, directed liturgically in the opposite sense, enclosed by a triangular frontispiece with far-foiled oculus. The interior has a single hall with a polygonal apse. The covering is barrel vaulted with groins, imposed on a Doric order trabeation with metope rosettes.
