  • I'll be gone in piazza San Fedele and I'm sitting next to the statue of Manzoni hundreds of times but never realise that the Palace next to Palazzo Marino was a church. and that Church! A basilica del ' 500 commissioned by the society of Jesus, which houses the relics of San Fedele, with a large central nave which culminates in the altar with Tabernacle of gold. On the sides, 4 chapels from unusual size, a pulpit and confessionals inlaid Walnut Bullfighting brothers who worked all his life. In the sacristy and in the underground crypt, contemporary works by artists such as Manzù, Palladino (his shoes in the chapel of the dancers where, until the ' 80 were the stars of the scale), De Maria, Fontana (the Christ of the Sacred Heart in the chapel near the altar as well as the stations of the cross in the hypogean Chapel). Gorgeous chorus, transferred from the Church of Santa Maria alla Scala shortly before Maria Theresa of Austria consented to its demolition to allow the Piermarini to build the teatro alla Scala.

  • Beautiful Catholic Church in piazza San Fedele in Milan. Built in the 16th century on orders from Saint Charles Borromeo, is centrally located among palazzo Marino and galleria Vittorio Emanuele. Elegant both internally with materials that give a "Mario Döpfner" viva rosea given by a stone that comes from Angera. Architect pellegrino Tibaldi. To visit

  • I confess, I did not know the existence of this Baroque jewel, a few steps from the Duomo. I must thank the replica of a mat, with p. Daverio, who has shown a few days before the trip. Splendid example of Baroque lombardo, rich and austere at the same time. A temple of the Reformation.
