This chapter discusses the progressive emancipation of the cives of Casale Monferrato (Piedmont) between 1070 and 1186, that is between the time in which the town was subject to the Bishop of Vercelli up to the official autonomy sanctioned by Emperor Frederick I. The civic dynamics at play are here explored through investigation of the parish church of Sant’Evasio, specifically through examination of its unusual narthex and its rich floor mosaic.
