  • Built in the middle of the 16th century the Church was modified in 1561 by Galeazzo Alessi in the style of the Counter Reformation, of which it represents the first example in Milan. Observing the façade ruffle decorative eye a strong imbalance between the two orders: extremely rich and elaborated the top edge, sober and almost bare one below, you have lost the original ornamental plasterwork. The Interior has a nave with side chapels, it is noted for the vaults and apse with beautiful decorations in fresco, in part by Camillo Procaccini, and some fine paintings of famous painters of the sixteenth century such as Simone Peterzano (the two large paintings on the sides of the presbytery), Aurelio Luini, Ambrose Figino, Carlo Urbino and Bernardino Campi. Unfortunately the works are not shown, nor there are explanatory signs whatsoever. Should therefore read up before any visit, that is better matched to that to Guastalla Gardens opposite and other destinations not far off, as the State University (ex Ospedale Maggiore "Ca ' Granda"), the basilica of San Nazaro in Brolo, the Church of Santo Stefano and s. Bernardino alle Ossa.

  • Chiesa di San Paolo e Barnaba-Church of St. Paul and Barnabas is located next to a small park and the building of the Milan court. Actually because courthouses in this area and we were, and then saw this church. 16-century buildings with sculptures of Barnabas, Ambrose, Peter and Paul on the façade. Lush, as expected, paintings and sculptures. Beautifully.
