  • Commissioned by san Carlo Borromeo to the society of Jesus, it was built by Pellegrino Tibaldi (1569) following the guidelines of the Council of Trent. To highlight the main altar of Pietro Pestagalli (1835) and the descent, Simone Peterzano (1573-1578). Curious the chapel of the dancers, who receives this name because until the eighties La Scala dancers brought flowers the night before the debut to the altar of the Madonna del Latte.

But because of beggars were sitting near the entrance of the Church, when I was taking a photo of the Church from Piazza San Fedele loud, kinda scary! Friends and ignoring the begging inspired men who had to enter the Church the Church soon was after in-situ trot. Met during the Italy tour was only a strange person. You could continue to travel to Italy to comfort without feeling anxiety at all other than the men.

  • Unfortunately I could not see her in, because it was closed. Finally today 26 feb, I could visit it as it is so beautiful and well worth it. Different from other churches, you can take a ride with a guided tour, starting from the inside and down into the crypt. There are several works that were part of the Church Maria della Scala, transported before being demolished.
