Ruins and Crypt of San Giovanni in Conca, a palochristian church destroyed in the early XX century. The church was built in IV century, and in its crypt were found many ancient roman objects



During the demolition of the church, the Facade was removed and used for another church, the near Valdesian Temple of Milan



This was how the church was:

And a beautiful ancient roman floor mosaic

(all pictures of this post are by Gusme)

San Protaso al Lorenteggio (very) ancient little church, from IX century. In this chapel Frederick Barbarossa stopped to pray a while during the siege of Milan









San Silvestro ai tre Ronchetti neoclassical church







Santa Teresa del Bambin Ges¨ church





San Carpoforo former church, ancient romanesque temple









Santa Giustina in Affori church









...and now a special one, a very rural and natural little church settled in a park, very nice and very romantic as a place, and unknown to the vast majority of milanese: San Marchetto! Although being very simple, is ancient and was built in 1500 circa

Thank you Tommolo

The Portinari Chapel was traditionally attributed to Michelozzo (not Bramante) even if more recent studies ascribe it to Filarete or one of Solari family

In the Certosa di Garegnano is useful to remember the role of Daniele Crespi in painting the plasters

You're very right Caligola, as always! I was writing by memory, I meant Filarete but somehow I wrote bramante, another renaissance architect active in milan...the structure of portinari chapel is actually very look alike to filarete project fot the church of the Sforzinda's hospital, the ideal city created by filarete...





with the central scheme and the four little tower all around the dome: this must be Filarete, really!
