Il palazzo? No no, Ŕ un palazzo gentilizio, una tipologia di edificio tipico delle cittÓ italiane, in pratica dato che qui da noi non c'era una vera e propria monarchia che comandava fino alla seconda metÓ del XIX secolo, ogni famiglia nobiliare (o anche i ricchi commercianti) si sentivano liberi di crearsi la loro piccola reggia. E' uno dei punti di forza a livello artistico delle cittÓ italiane

Ca' Granda at Niguarda Hospital Chapel, built in a style that would be described as Art Dec˛ elsewhere, but that in Italy is described as Simplified Neoclassicism/Fascist style for the era when it was build. Still now, Italian Art Deco suffers a lot of prejudices for its links with the fascist totalitarian regime. But it comes to consider only the architecture, well, then it is actually pretty good.

Yes Milan is Europe's and Italy's great underrated artistical city...

as a gift for the 26 (now 27 in Italy) december, here you are Santo Stefano in Brolo Basilica.
Originally built in 417 a.C., it is now a great basilica (70 meters long) built in an elegant baroque style:





























Trivulzio chapel:





















In this basilica the great painter Caravaggio was baptized. Best wishes to all!
