Basilica di Sant'Ambrogio (Basilica of Saint Ambrose)
Milan, Italy


The Basilica of St. Ambrose was begun by Bishop Ambrose himself around 385 and consecrated in 386. The church was built on a grand scale over an existing cemetery. The basilica was rebuilt in the Romanesque style. Historical records are lacking when it comes to an exact date, but scholars believe it was probably begun around 1080.

The interior of the basilica is absolutely overflowing with medieval art, including: many Romanesque carved capitals, a 4th-century sarcophagus carved with biblical scenes, a 9th-century silver altar, and a 10th-century canopy over the altar, the 10th-century "Serpent Column".

Between the IX and the XII century, thanks to the archbishops Angilberto II and Ansperto the transformations started that shaped the Basilica, while later the pictorial decorations of the Bramante, Bergognone and Luini followed. The basilica of St.Ambrose also boasts a formidable frame of chapels where the existing styles to Milan are represented, from l the severe forms of Luigi's Gagnola neoclassicism to the Baroque dome adorned by frescos of the Luini, to a warm intersection of Bernardino's Lanino Renaissance.

One of the most interesting sights in the Basilica of St. Ambrose is St. Ambrose himself. He is on display in the crypt, accompanied by St. Gervasius and Protasius. His skeleton is glazed with a protective coating and dressed in full bishop's finery, complete with white mitre and dainty slippers.

In 1543, the Holy Crown chapel on the right of the nave, received a painting by Titian, depicting the Christ receives the Crown of Thorns. This chapel is frescoed with Stories of the Passion by Gaudenzio Ferrari. In the small cloister adjacent to the tribune near the door that leads to the sacristy is a fresco by Bramantino.

Basilica di San Lorenzo (Basilica of Saint Lawrence)
Milan, Italy


The Basilica of San Lorenzo, with its huge dome is located in Corso di Porta Ticinese area, opposite the 16 corinthian marble columns (Colonne di San Lorenzo), which belonged to a temple under the Roman Empire. On the spacious churchyard there is a copy of a bronze statue of the Emperor Constantine. The church was built between 372 and 402. In that time the capital of the Roman Empire was moved from Rome to Mediolanum (Milan).

For the construction of the church materials from the nearby amphitheater were re-installed. The 16 Corinthian marble columns were part of the supporting structure of a building from the 3rd Century, probably it was the spa of the Emperor Massimiliano. The columns were in the 4th century brought to the present position for the construction of the Basilica of San Lorenzo. In the chapel Sant'Aquilino mosaics can be found from the Roman period.

In the 15th Century, the Basilica of San Lorenzo was heavily modified and newly decorated. With the dome and the four towers, the church has received a byzantine central layout. The dome is richly decorated and a historical testimony of Roman paintings, as are the frescoes and decorations in the back of the church.

Discover the other secrets and art treasures, visiting the basilica!
