  • Although D'Annunzio defined this beautiful 15th-century village "the island of Tuscany in Lombardy", giving it a truly realistic interpretation, much remains to be done, in my view, to enhance it and make it known on a wider scale. Castiglione Olona, beyond and before the village, is undoubtedly the collegiate church with the works of the Florentine Masolino da Panicale. To my wife, Florentine d. o., not unreal to relive history and art of his beloved city. Californian friends, then, are delighted. Compared to our previous visits-the latest is now dated-to enter the complex you pay a ticket, but it is money spent just fine. Cardinal Branda Castiglioni, diplomat of his time and art lover, erected on the highest hill of the village, the collegiate church, consecrated on 25 March 1425, complex that includes the Church and the Baptistery. Monumental, inside the Church, the frescoes by Masolino da Panicale: the story of the Virgin Mary, of Saint Stephen, of san Lorenzo, a crucifixion of Christ. In the baptistery we can admire other works by the Florentine painter, stunning, soft colors and delicate line, faces and fine robes. "the island of Tuscany in Lombardy" continues in Castiglione: in the Church of Villa, in the Palace of the Cardinal and some frescoes. But that's another chapter. An artistic complex, whose vision is recommended and cogent.

  • Amazing cycle of frescoes by Masolino and the "old lady", combined with a baptistery nothing short of fantastic, made even better with frescoes by Masolino. The Museum houses numerous relics belonging to the religious rituals that were celebrated on site. Excellent hospitality volunteers who administer the site.

  • The Collegiata di Castiglione Olona in Gothic Lombard was consecrated in 1425. Now part of a museum complex that includes three new exhibition halls and the famous baptistery. Masolino da Panicale has signed his masterpiece, transit from the middle ages to the Renaissance. The Director Wim Wenders called it: "A very spiritual place."

  • A place of peace and beauty. The frescoes by Masolino da Panicale are great as well and for the most part well-preserved. Visit highly recommended, for me it was a pleasant surprise.
