St. HOMOBONUS

S. OMOBONO
It was built over the pre-existing church S. Salvatore in Portico of the sixth century, in turn built on the ruins of the ancient TEMPLE OF MATER MATUTA 
Rebuilt in 1482 with money from a bequest of Stefano de Satri Baronilis, warden of the nearby hospital of S. Maria in Portico. The tomb of his family is in the church 
Granted in 1575 to the Universit√† dei Sarti (University of the Tailors) who restored it and dedicated it to St. Homobonus Tucenghi from Cremona, who lived in the second half of the twelfth century, protector of clothes collectors 
Other restorations in the years 1767, 1856, 1877, 1942 and 1964
