Ok after 32 pages I think it is time now to show that even in the metropolitan area of Milan there are not banlieux but particularly rich artistical towns, with an interesting historical/artistical heritage.

Santuario of Saronno, some 20 km north of the centre of Milan



The architect of this temple is supposed to be Giovanni Antonio Amadeo, and infact the proportion of the building are based upon the Golden Ratio, ike for example in the Duomo of Milan, where Amadeo was working on on those years (circa 1498)



Pellegrino Tibaldi's facade:











Bernardino Luini's fresco:



Gaudenzio Ferrari, great names of renaissance/baroque art in this sanctuary:



Andrea da Milano:

So beautiful. So beautiful. So beautiful.

This thread is very moving. I will visit Milan at some time in the future to see all of this. I am American with some ancestors from northern Italy, and I have always wanted to see this part of Europe, but I did not plan to see Milan because I did not know its beauty. Now I have changed my mind.

Thank you for creating this.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Yes, we're very shy about our heritage, basically because we have the hardest time competing with cities like Rome, Naples, Florence or Venice...but there's a lot to see here too!

This is my original hometown, Abbiategrasso, some 22 km south west of the Duomo, it is a nicely preserved historical town with lots of parks, the Ticino river and it is the starting point of the Naviglio Grande historical channel:

The Santa Maria Nascente basilica, started in 1388, the same year of the Duomo cathedral:



The bramantesque renaissance portico:







Renaissance cloisters, attribuited to Donato Bramante:







The bell tower as seen from the historic center:



Side chapels:



San Bernardino da Siena church, baroque facade by Richini:







San Pietro church, originally the oldest of the town: it is said that it has been build above a pagan temple:

...and a last one chuch from Abbiategrasso, probably the most important from an artistical point of view: the Convento dell'Annunciata, built in 1466 for an ex voto made by Milanese Lord Galeazzo Maria Sforza.
It has been built in a sober late gothic/early renaissance style, with a most elegant cloister and some of the finest renaissance frescoes you'll find in that area of Milan.
Many of them are of Leonardesque school:

Milan is truly an artistic city, not only fashion or industrial spot. I fell in love with these pics and obviously this thread. In my next trip to Italy, I'll find a way to discover "Milano nascosta", which includes visit not only Castle Sforzesco or Duomo square.
