Salvatore Di MariI worked right next to this church and every day, in my journey from the Missori Metro station to Via Torino, popping up in this little square and visit in front of the facade of this church made me immediately feel in a different city, so far from traffic and from the daily racing. The square is in fact a little oasis of calm, where to sit on one of the benches or at the tables of a cafe or wine bar to enjoy a moment of tranquility and admire the façade of the Church, which was also recently renovated and presents its splendid reliefs. Then at this point deserves a visit inside, where it almost seems to go into a Museum given the wealth of works of art. If we don't have you ever been, certainly passes to visit!show original
