As stated in a XVI century plaque on its façade, they believe that the church was built on the orders of countess Matilda of Tuscany. Actually, it was already there in 980 and it was related to Reggio Emilia diocese.
The church has a rectangular layout with three round apses and no transept; it has three naves, the central one being the widest one. Three single-lancet windows enlighten the apses, while the roof is trussed. The façade and the bell tower were almost rebuilt, while the apses are original.
The interior is decked with precious late XV century frescoes, depicting St. Anthony the Great, Madonna and Child, St. Lucy and other saints.
