In 1997, the Cathedral, the Ghirlandina Bell Tower and Piazza Grande were deservedly recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

The joint creation of Lanfranco and Wiligelmo is a masterpiece of human creative genius in which a new dialectical relationship between architecture and sculpture was created in Romanesque art. The Modena complex bears exceptional witness to the cultural traditions of the 12th century and is one of the best examples of an architectural complex where religious and civic values are combined in a medieval Christian town”.
