Chiesa di Sant'Angelo, Milan

4.4
Sant'Angelo is a church in Milan, Lombardy, northern Italy, belonging to the Franciscan Order.HistoryThe church was constructed in the mid-16th century by the Spanish general and Governor Milan Ferrante Gonzaga, over an edifice already existing in 1418, in replacement of the eponymous one, which had been destroyed to build the new walls. The design was by Domenico Giunti. The small bell tower was added in 1607, while the façade was finished only in 1630, in late-Mannerist or early-Baroque style. The church is one of the few in the city which was not restored in "neo-medieval" style during the 19th century.It has a single nave with side chapels and barrel vault, a transept and a deep presbytery. Artworks include works by Gaudenzio Ferrari (chapel of St. Catherine, now replaced by a copy; the original is in the Pinacoteca di Brera), Antonio Campi (same chapel), Morazzone (a St. Charles Borromeo in Glory), Simone Peterzano (frescoes in the St. Anthony Chapel), Ottavio Semino (Brasca Chapel in the transept), Camillo Procaccini (frescoes in the transept and in several chapels) and Giulio Cesare Procaccini (a Nativity, in the Rococo-style sacristy).

    Entry into the Church accepted from the majestic sound of the organ in a suggestion only. I was kidnapped from this place that I didn't know and that I discovered thanks to the fair that was held in front of on the occasion of Easter Monday. Traditional and convivial atmosphere in a big city, to visit even one day more calm and stop to admire the ceiling of the apse and the various chapels.

    On Easter Monday we went visiting this beautiful church and the exposure of flowers as usual in Milan. The mass was concelebrated by a friar very kid friendly and likable that at the end of mass, urged the faithful to take vision of the "Chorus" where a young and talented organist played a beautiful organ masterfully wowing everyone present. The Church is very beautiful but I recommend to visit it during a ceremony with the lights on, or on a nice sunny day because it is a little dark. A visit is absolutely recommended!!

    Beautiful baroque church built in 1552 rich in valuable paintings, frescoes and sculptures in 19 chapels. Works by various artists of the 1500 and 1600. To see the times of mass because dimly lit.

    Beautiful church, but also very convenient that the masses celebrated here are celebrated with the Roman Rite, for those like me who need to find the Roman Rite in Milan is really great!
