In the first half of the thirteenth century Franciscan friars from the nearby monastery in Oreno, traditionally believed to have been visited by St Francis himself, and founded the new Franciscan monastery, originally under the "Custody of Monza". During the 13th-century, it increased in importance and was occupied by Lectors and Maestri. In one of the frescos in the Convent there is an ornament (circa 1311) showing the coats of arms of both Visconti and Della Torre families. The date is the time when a truce between the two families was finally signed on Epiphany of that year. The truce between the two Milanese families was guaranteed by Henry VII, Holy Roman Emperor. In 1456 Francesco Sforza, Duke of Milan, provided a special grant with an annual offering of fifty florins, founding the Cappellania di San Francesco (Chapter of the Chapel of Saint Francis) in the church.
