Wow! This last picture is really Gorgeous! I Love entering that basilica when lights of the day fade off, it is really a peaceful place, perfect atmosphere!

And you're completely right! I'll try to reduce the number of pictures of my posts, even if I can't assure I can narrow them into 5 per post!

Here I present you two churches, both named after Santa Teresa del Bambin Gesł!
Yes, there are two churches with exactly the same name in the city! I guess after a while the names runs out!

Anyway, here you are: Santa Teresa del Bambin Gesł in Gorla district:





And Santa Teresa del Bambin Gesł in Portello district, more beautiful neo romanesque structure:





picture by Gusme:



five pictures!

Certosa di Garegnano part 2, it is one of my fave in Milan, and possibily stands in the top 10 or even the top 5 of best churches in Milan, yet it is virtually touristically unknown...crazy crazy thing really...I can't explain it!

Those others are about the church's precious stained glass windows:











...and this is the church facade, a picture taken in 1930s and found by SSC Italia user Bagaj. Luckily, the facade has remained unaltered since then

...and today I've taken some pictures also of the beautiful San Fedele basilica, a mannerist church wanted by Charles Borromeo, here you are the beautiful mannerist facade:









(well, the basrelief in the timpanum is not ancient as we intend that word in Italy: it is from XIX century, but still is ancient for anyone else's standard, isnt it? )

Ok this is not really a church but a chapel, but it is a really important chapel since here is buried Giuseppe Verdi, the composer of the Aida and many more work of art of classical music. The chapel is in the neo romanesque structure of the Casa Di Riposo per Musicisti, the Musician Retirement House:
