Lazzaro Spallanzani's cenotaph

Just inside the lateral entrance to the central church of the Holy Mary's Nativity, in Scandiano, a solemn monument - a cenotaph - containing the heart (precordia) of Lazzaro Spallanzani can be seen.

The monument - by sculptor Francesco Tondelli from Reggio Emilia1 contains a long inscription describing Spallanzani's merits and works.
