San Zeno Maggiore, Verona (Veneto)

San Zeno in Verona is an urban Benedictine monastery built in its current from between 1023 and 1035. The vertical pilasters and piers of the façade, the side elevations and the campanile subdivide the exterior walls, providing three levels of phrasing and rhythm, from the three bays of the main façade, to the four- and eight-bay rhythms of the side and central bays, to the horizontal striation of the side elevations and campanile.

The photo shows the west façade.
