It is today generally recognized that Cistercian architecture adopted and spread elements of Burgundian architecture and, spawning further foundations, local traditions were integrated. The relationship between “Cistercian” and “local” architecture has been the subject of continuous debate among scholars. The Cistercian church of Fontevivo, founded in 1142 near the city of Parma, in Emilia, sheds new light on this problem, offering insights into this contested situation.
