  • I came here on a beautiful sunny morning hoping his glare had broken on the inside of this colossal construction, that of really light has only the geometric and elegant façade "in the wind". Unfortunately it was not and it's a shame because this prevents to appreciate the paintings, sculptures and especially the grandiose Franciscan altarpiece the Canticle of the creatures.

  • After nearly 20 years I have had the opportunity to get back into my secret corner of meditation. It was my parish, but I do not live more in Milan. 31.10 Monday I was over there and my heart brought me there: the facade that frames the sky is always unique and breathtaking; the Interior is perfect for the Saint to whom is dedicated; the gigantic painting of Saint Francis and Saint Clare in the background to the nave (painted by an artist nano which I forget the name) deserves to be covered in lights on! I got all the sacraments: baptism, communion and confirmation with the parish priest Don Italo Pagani, fantastic man and priest. As a young man I was not particularly observant, but there I was thinking when I wanted to be alone: also the smell remained the same ... in fact there are still the wax candles and how do you do not light one? In the garden there is a second church dating back at least to the time of the manzonian plague ... is usually closed, but there I am married to the wonderful ceremony officiated by mons. Macchi. Mine are the eyes of the heart, but try to open it and to understand it: well worth it!

  • With all due respect to Gio Ponti, architect of many other works, I think the first quality of any building-regardless of its destination-should be sufficient brightness to at least see what it contains. Well, without getting into the merits of its lines and architectural solutions, otherwise objectionable, the Interior of this church-dedicated to Saint Francis, that light is the most genuine of the singers-is so dark that you don't stand out entire industries, such as the entire area above and behind the altar, but even areas on the sides (the photos that I had to recover detail in at most with little result). From "loopholes" opened in hundreds of tonnes of reinforced concrete penetrates well in low light, even on sunny days. That being said, that would result in a negative score, arouse some interest and appreciation surrounding area of "Fopponino", which can be reached by exiting the right side of the parish church or entering from Piazzale Aquileia, is the seventeenth-century Baroque church, sadly closed, Giovanni e Carlo. The Fopponino di Porta Vercellina, whose origins go back to the plague that struck Milan in 1576, was until 1896 one of suburban cemeteries and covering the driveway you can observe several testimonies. The best known and obvious is outside the mortuary chapel overlooking Piazzale Aquileia on the corner with Viale San Michele del Carso, while inside tombstones, ridges and small sculptures are reminiscent of people who were buried there, among them Margherita Barezzi, the beloved first wife of Giuseppe Verdi died only twenty-six.
