Treasure of San Jacopo

Located in a church

NOTE: In 1293, Vanni Fucci stole the treasure of San Jacopo. This treasure was located in the Duomo — the cathedral church — of San Zeno. One of the people falsely accused of the theft spent a year in prison. Vanni Fucci, however, avoided paying the penalty for the theft by leaving the area.
