in the Santa Maria alle Grazie basilica, we haven't shown the Bramante Sacristy, where many Leonardo da Vinci drawings are shown. It is quite nice, all walls are completely decorated and frescoed







...and if we want to talk about Santa Maria alle Grazie, we should also remember that in the front of the Last Supper there is another great renaissance fresco: the Crucifixion by Montorfano, with traces of painting by Leonardo itself in the portrait of dukes of Milan:

Madonna dei Poveri in Baggio church, by great architects Figini and Pollini. The interiors are really MAGICAL!

original project for the unfinished facade:



...with the nave filled by warm light coming down from above like morning's rain, the feeling you get when you visit the church is pure devotion, be you a believer or not. And please note that I'm not that much into XX century architecture, but when I see quality I recognize it

For this very important and studied church by Figini-Pollini studio there is a small pdf document to read (in italian, sorry):

...and an youtube video to see a little more about the church

Cascina Pozzobonelli ancient chapel









now let's go a little bit off Milan, this gothic/romanesque abbey is from Opera, at the southern borders of Milan.
Its ancient fresco are from Giotto's school (and personally I always thought that there is more than a trace from the Master itself, altough we can have no proof for the moment, just a question of..gut )
