Castiglione Olona is a piece of Tuscany in Lombardy, the small town is amidst a beautifully reserved natural landscape, and its main treasure are the most precious and important Masolino da Panicale's frescoes of the Baptistry of the Collegiata, one of the first frescoes ever painted in history with renaissance style: here we are assisting at the dusk of the middle ages and the rebirth of the new renaissance hope! Masolino da Panicale was a close friend of the beginner of the renaissance "feeling" in frescoes: masaccio.



As you can visibly see here...Dark Times are Over!



pure Gorgeousness!



here you are the Perspective!



and there are also lots of gothic frescoes on the church inside, of course:









Renaissance sculptures:



The facade:



the very beautiful and elegant and sober portal: no excess of decoration here, there are whole lots of art on the inside. No need to "exteriorize" the good taste!



The beautifully settled Collegiata, with a crown of gorgeous nature around it:





No, it is no Tuscany, it is between Milan and the Alps!

Snowy day today! Here are the picture of the Sant'Ambrogio basilica, with the "snow well" that you can see everytime it snows:











And the Santa Maria alle Grazie dome, by Bramante:





Snow in the most pictoresque lesser cloister...pure magic!

Magnificent. This is a real gift - beautiful frescoes and interiors and landscapes that I would never know about.

Thanks

Now let's move to Vigevano, some 30 km south west of the Duomo, where you can find one of the finest renaissance plaza in Lombardy, perfect location for the town's cathedral:















San Pietro Martire gothic church:





Santa Maria del Popolo church:

Always in the Ortica borough, we can find a very important ancient church, originally built in XII century and rebuilt then in XVI century, very rich of most important mannerist frescoes. This little ancient church is a real jewel filled with art and magic!

Sant'Elena church:

(picture by Ilda Casati)



Church interiors (sorry for the very low quality, when I have some better picture I'll post it here!)









this church has a very high nave, some 30 meters I guess, and it's insppired by bizantine architecture. It is one of the many churches built at the beginning of XX century by the very influent bishop Ildefonso Schuster. The dedication to Saint Helen, mother of empereor Constantine, is due to the fact that when the church eas built, in 1939, the queen of Italy was Queen Helen.
