San Rufino
Perhaps not everyone knows that the cathedral of Assisi is not San Francesco, but San Rufino, the mother church of the diocese of Assisi-Nocera Umbra-Gualdo Tadino. It rises in the homonymous square, originally a terrace created in Roman times, perhaps the forum of the Roman city of Asisium. On this site stood a Roman temple dedicated to the Bona Mater. Then a basilica was erected there in 412 where the remains of San Rufino were preserved as the people wanted, in contrast to Bishop Ugone who wanted to move them to the then cathedral of Santa Maria Maggiore, with the victory of the citizens of Assisi . In the feudal city the church of San Rufino was the centerpiece of the "citadel of the canons" and the foundation of the present church probably dates back to the 8th century. It was then remade for the first time in larger forms by Ugone himself, who awarded it at the end of the title of cathedral in 1036. In 1140 a new reconstruction was started on a project by Giovanni da Gubbio, which lasted for several decades. In 1210 the Municipality, which used its churchyard for meetings, hoped for a speedy completion, because it attributed to the incomplete building the bad luck that animated the struggles between the factions. In 1228 Pope Gregory IX consecrated the high altar and in 1253 the entire completed church was consecrated by Innocent IV. In 1571 the interior of the cathedral was renovated to a design by Galeazzo Alessi, assuming the current conformation.
