Thank you for your interest!
The archeological findings comes from a palechristian chapel that was on the site of the actual basilica. The tombs dates back to late roman empire/early paleochristian era, that is the IV century. The chapel was called "Cella Memoriae" (temple of memory) and was built on the site of an ancient roman fortification to bury a martyr whose name is still unknown.
The beautiful frescoes are in early romanesque style and they have been painted during the rebuilding of the basilica in the X-XI century.
It is interesting to notice that the great philosopher Severinus Boetius (475-525 a.D.) it is reported to have written in this religious complex at least some part of his classic work "De Consolatione Philosophiae".

Another important feature is the very delicate romanesque portal, very elegant:

Ok this is not properly Milan but its metropolitan area, and since trips in Milan always includes trips to see the many beautiful lakes below the Alps, I decided to show also this one...I like it so much, I can't help!

Abbazia della Colorina, Nerviano:



And a Novecento church, Santa Teresa in Legnano. Novecento was a monumentalist style that emerged in the first half of the XX century in opposition with rationalists issues.
