Great work on this thread, Tommolo!
I am (finally!) going to Milan next month and I have gone through all the pages on this thread to select what churches I'm visiting. GRAZIE!

Wow are you serious!!?? That's an amazing news! Tell me if I can help you with some route or advice you may need, this is a great time to visit the city, not too warm and not too cold, I hope you get the best experience that you can, since you're extremely fond of photography, there are also lots of open "belvedere" to see the city from above, from towers and so on...you'll find an essentially modern city dotted with historical gems everywhere, there is both great modern and ancient architecture, just enjoy your visit and have a great great time, and if you did not book you Last Supper visit yet, I would advice you to do it as soon as you can, the queue is months long!

Far from being perfect, Milan have huge issues to solve yet, but it's my city and I love it!

Of course I'd be really honoured to see your pictures in this thread! That would be an amazing addition!

Santi Giovanni Battista e Carlo al Fopponino church, built in a simple but elegant baroque style between year 1662 and 1673.
It was a chapel built in the burial area dedicated to those who died for the plague. "Fopponino" in lombard dialect infact means "pit", in reference of the many burial pit you can find in here.

The map of the Templars' travelling routes across Europe towards the Holy Land. Since 1972, this little church has been frequently used by the Sovereign Military Order of Malta (they restored it), and so there are a lot of reference to other military orders like, for instance, the Templars.

The beautiful Liberty/art nouveau style church of the Sacro Cuore (Holy Heart), in viale Piave, central Milan. This votive temple, with a huge cross on its Liberty facade, was built between 1905 and 1908 according to the design of the architect Paolo Mezzanotte. It's the home of Capuchin friars in Milan and serves a community that help feeding the poors and the leftovers of the city, and a soup kitchen too.

Thank you very much!

Santa Maria Assunta in Vigentino, a small mannerist church in the outskirts of Milan.
Why a church like this outside the city center? Well, we have to go back to the time of the Holy Roman Empire of Frederick "Barbarossa". While Milan was a huge city in the SRI, there was no love lost between the Empereor and Milan, a very problematic city back then, that caused many wars between the surrounding cities. In the year 1162, the Empereor decided that Milan, the ancient roman city of Milan, should go delenda like Carthago.
The inhabitants of the walled city were gathered in the surrounding boroughs and the ancient roman city was completely erased from the face of earth, except of course the churches (that was of course the Holy roman empire).
That was what happened also to the back then small borough of the Vigentino, where a small chapel was built in the year 1167.
This church that we see nowadays is of course a mannerist church and it was built in the year 1571, just instead of the previous small chapel.

After a restoration, is now opened daily for an hour, from 16pm to 17pm.

San Lanfranco ancient romanesque church in Pavia, an interesting example of Lombard brick romanesque style with a very tall and monumental bell tower that stands in the outskirts of Pavia, yet very close to the railway station, it's very easy to reach it also with buses. The church should have been built between the death of the bishop Lanfranco Beccari (1198) and the year 1257, when the facade has been built.

This is the (very irregular) plan of the church:

As you may have notice Pavia is one of the very finest cities in Lombardy, rich in history and artistical jewels. Its heritage is outstanding, also thanks to its impressive romanesque monuments, often extremely well preserved.

This is another one romanesque church of Pavia, it's called Santa Maria in Betlem and it stands just across the Ticino river from the ancient walled city. The district on the other side of the river, called Borgo Ticino, still have a very rustic and genuine charm, and it feels like you're in one of the many small town scattered everywhere in the pavese landscape.

But you are in Pavia, and therefore you get some romanesque church.

Santa Maria in Betlem has been built between the year 1150 and 1160 probably.

The facade, standing just in the Borgo Ticino main street.

Sandstone romanesque portal of high quality. But, like in San Michele, the sandstone is falling apart:

And in Pavia of course there is also some gothic style too, beside the Certosa di Pavia charterhouse that is an amazing gothic-renaissance monument.

The Santa Maria del Carmine church is to me one of the finest gothic churches in northern Italy, and its delicate and warm Lombard brick gothic style makes it extremely elegant and "welcoming", not quite like the typical "cold" stone gothic cathedral.

This church (but we can call it also "cathedral" for architectural merits) was started in the year 1374 and it took until 1461 to finish it, almost a century. Of course, the building of the Certosa charter house also in Pavia partially caused this delay: two big gothic canteers in a row are probably too much! The (wonderful and well proportioned) facade was anyway built later, in the year 1490.

It's toghether the San Petronio in Bologna one of the biggest brick gothic churches in Italy, roughly almost as big as the Pavia cathedral in terms of surface.

Not shown on the pictures, but behind the apsis there is also a beautiful campanile or bell tower 75 meters tall.

The wonderful facade, just like the Duomo of Milan, but...in bricks!

We remain in the beautiful Pavia to show you a couple of magnificent Renaissance church, the first one is the San Salvatore church, also known as San Mauro. A jewel covered with classy frescoes in a style that encompasses the late gothic and the early Renaissance. Extremely elegant to me.

This church stands along the "Via Francigena", one of the most important historical/religious pathways in Europe together with the more famous "Camino de Santiago".
The "Via Francigena" (Unesco world heritage tentative list at the moment) started from Canterbury in Great Britain and reached Rome crossing the Alps and the Appennines. Another church along the Via Francigena in Pavia is the previously shown San Lanfranco romanesque church.

The San Salvatore (or San Mauro) church was built between 1497 and 1511 above a previous, Langobard church built in the year 657 by the will of the King of Langobards Aripert I to celebrate the definitive conversion of the Langobards to Catholicism.

And now an absolute masterpiece of Renaissance art, the cathedral (or "duomo") of Pavia.
Absolutely amazing. It has one of the tallest dome in Italy, 97 meters tall!

The cathedral was begun in the year 1488 by the will of the cardinal Ascanio Maria Sforza, brother of Ludovico Maria Sforza, called "Ludovico il Moro", at that time the "unofficial ruler" of the Duchy of Milan. The first architects were the great Giovanni Antonio Amadeo (always him) and Cristoforo Rocchi, then antoher great Architects was called, Donato Bramante, that had the idea of the great dome.
Leonardo da Vinci, that worked on the lantern tower of the cathedral of Milan, was probably asked to work onto the Pavia's dome too.
It was only in 1884 that the dome was erected by Carlo Maciachini. The facade, also of 1898, has been designed by Carlo Maciachini too.

And after many churches from Pavia, let's return to Milan, with a couple of ecleptic style churches from the beginning of XX century. Brand new churches, for the milanese standards, but still worth a mention.

Here we are the Santa Croce church, built between 1913 and 1917 by the architect Cecilio Arpesani. Built to celebrate the 1600 years of the edict of Milan by the roman empereor Constantine (at that time the capital of the western roman empire was Milan), it stands as one of the finest ecleptic churches in the city, built with an excellent quality design and extremely elegant materials, marbles and furnitures.

Its style is inspired in the paleochristian basilicas of Rome and Ravenna, to show continuity with the imperial age of Milan, when the christianism was legalized in all the roman empire thanks to Constantine.

The facade:

This is definitely one of my favourite ecleptic style churches in Milan, it has been designed with an excellent quality by Cecilio Arpesani, and to me it looks like a sort of "mini-Saint Paul outside the walls" of Rome...it just has the same feeling, just scaled down to 1/10 of the original eheh!

Another one great and very monumental ecleptic style church is the Sant'Andrea and San Rocco church, built in a typical basilical style (no transept, great central nave, two small side naves and often three apses).
This church shows a great design quality and was built with very expensive elegant marbles. It is also one of the largest revival churches in Milan, and it was designed by the engineer-architect Cesare Nava and built between 1902 and 1904, even if the decorations of the facade are from the 1980s.

The exteriors:

Here the history of this church (in italian)

Some old piece of art from the old church is now in the new one.

Like this baroque madonna


Or this one



Or this splendid painting now in the Castello museum, coming from the primitive church, destroyed in 1700. Cesare da Sesto 1523, Polittico di San Rocco

Thank you for your contribution, Skymino!
Yes, the ancient church had some incredible piece of art...San Rocco or in english Saint Roch was a very frequent dedication name for churches around 1600-1700 because he was the saint patron againt the plague...Estremely beautiful and elegant the baroque statues you've shown...there is definitively continuity between Saint Roch and Sant'Andrea!

This is another revival church in Milan, well, this is actually a basilica, a minor basilica and a sanctuary dedicated to the Madonna of Caravaggio. It has been built according the design of the architect Cecilio Arpesani, the one that we've just saw in the previous church. This little (but very crowded) basilica was built between 1902 and 1911 in a delicious and pretty neo-romanesque style and stands in the southern part of the outskirts of Milan.
