Happy eastern everybody!
Today is the perfect day for a 360° of the most iconic milan church, the Bramante's Santa Maria alle Grazie and his Last Supper fresco by Leonardo da Vinci!

Let's have a look!

the exterior:

The interiors:

The refectory containing the two important renaissance frescoes:

Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper as you've never seen it! With zoomify, with an incredible level of detail, enjoy it!

That way part of our Roman heritage simply disappeared, to build other buildings (it worked that way in whole Europe. Even in Rome)

In this case the used part of the Roman amphitheater, not far from S.Lorenzo

Yes I've been not so clear in the description. The blocks of the foundations came from the near amphiteater, which was destroyed in the late roman empire era. So those are ancient foundation made of stones coming from the roman era, at least.
Anyway the basilica dates back to IV century, so I guess the stone blocks were used for the crypt already in that era...

Statues on the exterior of the Duomo:













the golden statue of the Virgin Mary, known as "la Madunina"































Giorgio Solari's statue:



Matteo Raverti's statue, "the Giant", 1404



the "Guglia Carelli", the first one completed:







another sight of "la Madunina"



















The sculptured Gates:



And last but not least, the detail of the statue of "la Madunina", created in 1774 by goldsmith Giuseppe Bini and artist Giueppe Perego. It seems small but it is 4,16 meters tall!
