  • The Church of Santa Maria Podone dates back some 200 years before the year 1000 ad has undergone many changes over the centuries and restructuring, in particular by the Borromeo family, one of the most influential of the Milan of the sixteenth/seventeenth century. The Borromei (there is also the plural form), who owned a 15th century palace in front of the Church and one of the eighteenth century (I think it is still their) next to it, have always considered something of a family Chapel, from which the statue of St. Charles Borromeo, Archbishop of Milan, next to the entrance. Now. for good relations between the Catholic Church and the Orthodox communities, is closer to the Greek Orthodox, as happened to other old Catholic churches. Unfortunately is hardly ever open. In the Church is buried the mathematician, physicist and astronomer Roger Boscovich, a founder of Brera Astronomical Observatory, of which he was Director and whose beautiful monument is located at the public gardens, next to the civic Planetarium.

  • Entrusted by over five years to the Greek Orthodox community this small church with ancient origins but is not easily amended several times visited since times are often disregarded. Anyway, if you're lucky, at 11 on weekdays you can get into the baroque interior with three aisles and admire some precious frescoes. Entering the presbytery and apse are partly hidden from view by the Orthodox liturgy. It should be remembered that the Church buried the great astrophysicist and mathematician of the Dalmatian origins Ruggero Boscovich, who lived a long time in Milan and was a founder and Director of the Astronomical Observatory of Brera. Remember there's a plaque placed in June of last year, while the public gardens next to the civic Planetarium there is a beautiful monument dedicated to him (see review).

  • Very small Orthodox rite church gathering and good decorative layer that allows you to get closer to this variation of Christianity itself with simplicity and curiosity. The Church overlooks piazza Borromeo and on the right is a statue of Cardinal Borromeo, who became an icon of the Cardinal, especially following the narrated by Alessandro Manzoni in his novel the Promised bride and groom.

  • In 1400 it was restored in the Gothic style from the Borromeo family, who built the great family Chapel, now dedicated to the Holy family. It was later modified in Baroque style in 1600. The façade, with four beautiful columns of 1628. There is the motto of the Borromeo family: Humilitas. In the Interior, with three naves, there are beautiful frescoes of the fifteenth century, recently rediscovered. The Interior is buried the famous astronomer and mathematician Roger Boscovich, who was one of the first collaboraboti of the Observatory of Brera. Outside stands the statue of Saint Charles Borromeo. In 2012 the milanese Curia gave the Church to the Greek Orthodox community and in 2013, during his visit to Milan, the Patriarch of Constantinople, Bartholomew I, has been praying in this church at the side of Cardinal Scola
