  • The Church of San Fedele is accessible from the portal facing the square. Is a beautiful little church from the 16th century.

  • It seems to be in a corner of Paris in this attractive little square dominated by this beautiful church from the inside.

  • To appreciate this church must be guided; because it is a church that moves, don't immediately – not – impresses with its wealth of architecture or of the decorations as other churches osannatissime (also in Milan), is not monumental. It is a church where you have to enter, as faithful (if is) but also as tourists, to make a path of understanding, discovery, preferably led by a competent person. And that's what I did the other night, after hearing a lecture by father Andrea Dall'Asta SJ (Jesuit) on wooden confessionals: are 9, scattered around the Church and sacristy, carved in a marvelous way, to tell the story of salvation brought by Christ. The scenes, specifically choices – of course, are made with absolute perfection; each one is a small/large masterpiece of wooden sculpture in a building where every detail has a symbolic meaning. Exude the same perfection in scenes that "decorate" the pulpit: Nativity, Crucifixion, resurrection of Christ, the saviour of the world (IHS, the monogram of the society of Jesus, this countless times throughout the Church). It is a church where I walked dozens of times and that I discover more and more: really exciting!

  • Beautiful church
  • Imposing Jesuit church, designed by architect Pellegrino Tibaldi of San Carlos Borromeo, inside fine works, the area is pedestrianised.
