San Cassiano (III - IV secolo)

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

At the beginning of the V century the presumable grave of the Christian martyr was already worshipped in an area which today is known as the Villa Clelia archaeological site.

The events regarding the saint’s life are not sure, but tradition has it that he was made a martyr during the last persecutions of the Christians in 303 A.D. Legend has it that he was executed by his own disciples to whom he taught “ars notaria” – the art of writing.

Saint Cassiano is the patron saint of Imola and is celebrated on the 13th August.
