Italian documentary filmmaker, Luca Centoni has started work on the third episode of the Templars series.
I will be sharing Exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of short film clips and photos – A travel diary of his travels across Italy and the British Isles.
I am happy to share the first of these insider views with you! And I so look forward to seeing him in early June when he and his son Paolo arrive in England to film with me near Canterbury.
Enjoy the images from Cremona Italy! Said to be the location of the Cremona Documents kept in the church of San Sigismondo in the 15th century.
The Church of San Sigismondo is stunning and built in the Baroque style by military engineer, Bartolomeo Gadio. The church celebrates the marriage of two warring families and peace between the houses of Sforza and Visconti. It is a feast for the eyes and of course, plays an important role in the story of Zena Halpern’s Map of Oak Island.
The bell tower is octagonal which is an important architectural feature of Knights Templar building practices. The Templars have a long history of octagonal or round tower construction. The church began construction in 1441 over the original medieval church.
