The church as it is today is the result of at least two periods of construction, the 12th century for the apse section and the 16th for the extended body of the church. The oldest areas of the building are alien in character to the rural building traditions of Romagna and are reminiscent of work in the Po Valley andTuscany, influenced by the “Lombard Romanesque” style.

 The slab that now serves as the altar frontal is of particular interest, as its decorative theme and type of workmanship is unique in the context of early medieval Romagna art.
