  • 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.

  • Among the largest and most typical examples of architecture according to the dictates of the Counter Reformation this historic church, built in the second half of the 16th century, is also distinguished by some valuable works of art contained in the aisle, both in the exhibition space within it. Enjoy the deposition by Simone Peterzano and the Madonna della Scala, beginning 16th century fresco of luinesca school. Improved lighting Finally, accomplices also the holiday season.
