grazie a te Pellicano per leggere questo thread! Thanks to anybody for reading this thread!

Pictures taken today, rainy day, but I find this church open that I haven't published yet since there weren't pictures on the internet.

Santa Maria Annunciata in Camposanto baroque church, a little baroque church now hidden in this XIX century building just behind the Cathedral:



Now the interiors (sorry for the low quality of the images!)













The artistical masterpiece of the church, the altarpiece is a sculptural basrelief from Renaissance I guess:





And now some image taken today of the pictoresque 'cortili' in Milan (as I keep on saying, when in Milan, go inside courtyards to enjoy the hidden treasures of the city, since Milan is the courtyard city par excellence I would say!) this ones are taken in the Navigli district (that is, the part of Navigli that has not been covered in the 30s).











Boats in Milan, once this views were very frequent, will they return being so frequent sometimes soon? We all hope so!





...and that's all for today's reportage from a springtime rainy day in Milan!

Nice pictures. It seems Milan is doing a fine job preserving the architecture of these churches.

Thank you! Yeah Milan is a city that has always changed a lot through centuries, but those historic monuments are being well preserved, even if not so well touristically promoted!

Santa Maria della Passione basilica, the largest temple in the city after the duomo, it covers a surface of some 3000 square meters. Pictures by Panoramio user Luigi Petrazzoli:

A photographic set I've taken from the Italian UNESCO world heritage sites facebook fanpage, rich of amazing pictures everyday!

Santa Maria alle Grazie, probably the most relevant church in Milan in terms of art history (and my fave :p )







love the warm colour of those red bricks!!!





Original wooden portals:

















ok, this one needs no presentation



Incredible as it may seem, this is the very only spot in milan to have achieved the UNESCO world heritage site in Milan...

Here a post another video not regarding churches in particular but about the ancient Milan, how it was (and how it still partly is) after the World War II bombings:

Ok this is not a church, but still is one of the top three Palace in Milan, with paintings from Tiepolo and ancient roman statues decorating it...I hope you like it!

Beh, impressionante!















L'infilata:





Che bella l'arena civica utilizzata come laghetto con un ninfeo al centro! Non potrebbe essere utilizzata ancora oggi così, magari con dei giochi d'acqua?



Quadrone di Sant'Ambrogio:



Il più ricco tra i cortili milanesi:











Scalone d'onore:



























Corridoio dei gabinetti del sindaco, ricolmo di reperti archeologici di epoca romana o in qualche caso paleocristiana:







La sala degli Affreschi del Tiepolo, staccati da Palazzo Dugnani. Ora hanno bisogno di un bel restauro per tornare a splendere.









La bella facciata della Scala e la leggiadra aggiunta di un architetto che ama il mimetismo e l'intervento minimale, che non dia nell'occhio, elegante: mario botta.



Una delle due statue Romane di età imperiale (splendide!) che decorano la Sala del Tiepolo:



Una piccola quadreria davvero raffinata:



Procaccini:



Il tempesta:









la scalinata, scendendo:



Adios!

...and here I add pictures from a guided tour I made yesterday to see the hidden secret passages beneath the Sforzesco castle, this one tunnel is dating back to the renaissance and it is only a small part of the whole network of tunnels connecting the castle with underground secret tunnels leading towards churches and palaces.
This one is the Camminata Coperta della Ghirlanda, and it is 1 km long at least.
Many of these tunnels are still not explored or flooded, and are disposed in at least three levels. This one was in the first level, who knows what will it be below it?

Anyway, since the quality of my pictures is very low, I add a youtube video shoot during the yesterday's visit to show you what it looks like to visit this kilometers long tunnels!

Scusatemi ancora per la pessima qualità delle foto, ma qui, oltre al mio pessimo livello di fotografo, c'era anche l'attenuante della oscurità del luogo!
