Santa Maria Incoronata is a church in Milan, Italy. It was completed in 1460.Artworks in the interior include a painting by Bergognone, Christ under the Grill, the tomb of Giovanni Bossi, attributed to Bambaia, a Baroque fresco cycle of the Life of St. Nicholas of Tolentino by Ciro Ferrari, and the Biblioteca Umanistica ("Humanist Library", 15th century). The latter has three naves divided by granite columns, with frescoes of the Magisteri Sacrae Pagines commissioned by the Augustinians when they acquired the building. OF the original gardens and cloisters, only one of the latter has survived.HistoryThe church is formed by two paired buildings. The oldest one existed as early as the communal age and was dedicated to St. Maria di Gargnano. Starting from 1400, a new convent was built annexed to it for the Augustinians, who had the structure restored in late Gothic style. The new church was completed in the same age of the election of Francesco Sforza as duke of Milan 1451, and received the current name (meaning "St. Mary Encrowned") in the occasion. In 1460 the duke's wife, Bianca Maria Visconti, commissione the construction of a new church next to the oldest one, identical and connected to it, in order to create a single, larger edifice.The church was modified in 1654 and 1827, but was restored to the medieval appearance in the early 19th century.

  • I went back today to revisit this ancient, beautiful and unusual Church. The atmosphere that you breathe is always that Renaissance style. The twin churches the oldest is the one on the left, dedicated to celebrating the coronation Crowned Duke of Milan of the condottiero Francesco Sforza. The one on the right, identical, was built years later by Bianca Maria Visconti, Sforza's wife, to show his subjects the Union that reigned in the Ducal couple. Subsequently the two churches were United by demolishing interior walls. Thus became a dual Church, such as San Cristoforo sul Naviglio. Nice two plaques on the walls: on the left external one that remembers the crowning of Francesco Sforza and his wife Bianca Maria devoted right.

  • Hides a very particular, with two façades and two naves. Style very nice on the outside, with the Interior that remains poorly decorated and just rich.

  • Church "double"; the two sides have completed only a few years away from each other (the one on the left is older), around the middle of the ' 400. Double façade, each of the two parts has a gable roof and Gothic-style portal, above open up ogival Windows and two rose Windows. The Interior has two naves, ending with polygonal apses. If passing in corso Garibaldi, is worth a short visit.

  • Although majority of original interiors were missing, some original tombs and frescoes survived. Visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo without flash light.
  • A beautiful 15th century church, located very close to the newest part of the city Porta Nuova...
  • Fantastic 15th century church.
  • The humanist library, the only example of humanism in Lombardy, which dates back to 1487, is a place where mind and spirit found a club more unique than rare. The beauty of the time from the Sun of San Bernardino and precious decoration with impressive columns, makes this one of the most beautiful and unique in the heart of Milan. Is definitely one of my favourite places where I also had the good fortune, pleasure, and above all honor to partner on the occasion of the beautiful and unforgettable view of ancient art "the sense of the divine", with paintings of private collections. I personally whenever you come back, I feel a kind of sensation from Stendhal Syndrome, so great is his beauty.
