Inaugurated in 2010 this venue takes its name from the old church of San Giovanni; it is the first area of the Diocesan Museum of the Cathedral. In the Spazio San Giovanni precious artworks can be admired, such as the gothic wooden choir of the Cathedral by Baldino da Surso (1477), silverware and paraments, sculptures from the 14th century and gravestones from bishops, as well as the fresco from Gandolfino with the “Madonna della Barca”. The visit leads to the crypt dating back to the 8th century. Of the four capitals the Corinthian ones were from the reconstruction of Asti by Theodoric the Great, the others go back to early middle ages (8th – 9th century).
