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).

  • Outside there is the fountain of St Francis with pigeons, one of the three fountains in Milan who were once fired with sulphurous waters, known as the Aqua Marcia. Today only at Castello Sforzesco maintains the supply of that water. The façade is Baroque, rebuilt. Upon entering you stay a moment breathless for the Majesty of the Church having no kneelers and benches brings out even more big and peak time for barrels and the immense nave. All round well 19 noble chapels, all richly decorated with sculptures and paintings of great value. An expert there could pass safely a day, just to see them all ...

  • Right in the heart of Milan, already on the pavement outside paved with river stones, with fountain and the statue of St. Francis, at head height, that preaching to the birds, you enter in a medieval atmosphere full of charm and timelessness. Inside are frescoes and wooden inlays complement this dip in Franciscan joy. Even a short prayer, even without words, but with our hearts, even the only visit they give great consolation. Also not practicing or even non-believers find peace and silence that restore the spirit. Try not cost anything.

  • Beyond the Baroque façade was greeted by an interior entirely decorated with frescoes of great artists and fine ornamental plasterwork. Seeing in the entrance in Via Moscova two wonderful medieval carvings: a deposition and a Madonna with child terracotta, marble works of the sculptor and architect Francesco Solari (1420-1469).

  • Remarkable church with beautiful works of art in each of its many side chapels.
  • i got raped
  • Church certainly beautiful, pity that the many chapels are illuminated only 3 and being a little dark we see little. Interesting a fresco depicting the crucifixion but to be restored in part

  • Very nice indeed. Monumental. Discreetly maintained. The square in front of the facade could be kept better.
