Good morning everybody!

Today I will show you one of the Milan's cathedral main appreciated features:
The "Quadroni di San Carlo", that is "big painting of saint Charles". It is a set of 55 baroque painting by great names of the art scene of the era. Their dimension is pretty huge: 5 meters per 6, and they decorate the nave and the transept of the cathedral during the months of november and december. When they put the paintings above the columns, the cathedral became even more like an art gallery

Here they are (not all, just a selection):

Il Duchino and Il Morazzone paintings:

Thank you very much Civis! Yes, it is a very rich city for arts in general, to me one of the richest cities when comes to talk about monuments (although the vast majority of possible rival cities are inside italy, making her looking like almost a "minor sister" if compared to rome, florence, venice or naples).
Even if the vast majority who visit Milan just go to the "shopping area" and just passes by art and the real beauties of the city!

Are you from Rome? I was thinking to open a similar thread for the monumental churches of rome, but I guess it would be too much...there are just too many temples, just 370 in the historical center area...

Anyway, here goes som paintings and side chapels from the San Marco basilica in Milan:

Outside view of lateral chapels:



Francesco Londonio "three dimensional" nativity scene (very nice!):



Martino Aliprandi's Arch:



Salvarino Aliprandi's Arch:
