San Lorenzo basilica, an example of central plan church dating back to late roman (not romanesque, roman!) era.

The dome is 27 meters in diameter, one of the largest in the city together with Santa Maria della Passione, Santa Maria delle Grazie and San Carlo al Corso church:

Looks like a reduced version of the Hagia Sofia in Istanbul, but this is actually one century and half older than the one in Costantinople...

...And there is also another church that is always so beautiful in Milan...Sant'Ambrogio basilica:

20171002_143132_HDR by 04bc40240a2368c44cd1c20b632e705d, su Flickr

An ancient carved tombstone in the external portico in front of the basilica:

20171002_143013_HDR by 04bc40240a2368c44cd1c20b632e705d, su Flickr

The typical templar chess, symbol of that legendary military order:

20171002_143215_HDR by 04bc40240a2368c44cd1c20b632e705d, su Flickr

Just below the templar chess, an incredibly unknown ancient roman jewel, a frieze depicting harvesting cherubs, dating back to the IV century, on what once was the main entrance to the right bell tower.

20171002_143426_HDR by 04bc40240a2368c44cd1c20b632e705d, su Flickr

You can find these little jewels entring in the basilica by the left door, you'll find the templar chess and the frieze right on your left.

Traces of the original high-middle ages frescoes that once depicted all the basilica. Now you can find them only on the sides of the left apse:

20171002_143658_HDR by 04bc40240a2368c44cd1c20b632e705d, su Flickr

20171002_143708_HDR by 04bc40240a2368c44cd1c20b632e705d, su Flickr

These traces of decorations dates back to the second half of the X century.

A little portion of the original paleochristian structure, beside the so-called Bramante's cloisters:

20171002_144206_HDR by 04bc40240a2368c44cd1c20b632e705d, su Flickr

Notice the typical roman arches:

20171002_144211_HDR by 04bc40240a2368c44cd1c20b632e705d, su Flickr

San Sigismondo, a little romanesque church set in the middle of Bramante's cloisters:

20171002_144229_HDR by 04bc40240a2368c44cd1c20b632e705d, su Flickr

Details of the so-called cloisters of Bramante:

20171002_144252_HDR by 04bc40240a2368c44cd1c20b632e705d, su Flickr

The carolingian masterpiece of Sant'Ambrogio basilica, one of the highest point in all of the high renaissance artistical production, the Golden Altar of Vuolvinius. One of the best piece of art of the Carolingian Era, really.

20171002_144505_HDR by 04bc40240a2368c44cd1c20b632e705d, su Flickr

And now another romanesque church, now almost totally transformed rather into a neoromanesque church, the little but delicious San Babila church, that gives the name to the very popular Piazza San Babila, the heart of the shopping district in a short walking distance from the Duomo cathedral.

The original church is believed to have been built around the IX century, today the most ancient standing element of the basilica are the original romanesque capitals, dating back to the XI century.

20171002_154213_HDR by 04bc40240a2368c44cd1c20b632e705d, su Flickr

The interiors are now almost completely in neo romanesque style, but this little basilica has been for centuries a lovely baroque church! The heavy restoration took place between the year 1881 and 1890, with the facade being completed only in 1905 and the interiors completed with their mosaics only in the year 1929.

San Carlo al Lazzaretto church, built in 1576 by Pellegrino Tibaldi and dedicated to Saint Charles Borromeo, archbishop of Milan and one of the Father of the Counter Reformation together with San Ignacio de Loyola and Saint Philip Neri. It is a central plan church that once stood in the centre of the Lazzaretto, a large square court where were placed the crowds suffering from plague during the dramatic plague outbreaks.

The exteriors of the little church, in a picture published in this post by Urbanfile.org:

Best Season's greetings for all fellow readers here! Best wishes for a wonderful new Year!

Santa Maria segreta church in central Milan, very close to Cadorna Railway station.
We have seen in the past very few pictures of this church, but always taken from the internet and never my own pictures, but now the church is excellently lit and you can enjoy the great architecture and artworks of the interiors.

This church takes the name of a previous, smaller church that was demolished in 1911 in order to open the ellyptical "piazza Cordusio", between the Sforza castle and the Duomo cathedral. Many decorations, frescoes, furniture and even a couple of pulprits have been transferred to this new church, built between 1012 and 1918. The original, small facade of the church was rebuilt as a side entrance to this church.

The facade:

This little church is one of the very few that we've never seen before in this thread.
It's the other Sant'Ambrogio...Sant'Ambrogio ad Nemus, very close to the neoclassical masterpiece, the Arco della Pace triumphal arch.
The original church dates back to ambrosian era, so the IV century, when this area was all woods (nemus in latin language). The founder was maybe st. Martin of Tours in the year 356 a.C. The church was restored in 1909 by the architect of Milano central station, Ulisse Stacchini. We can see a resemblance of the interiors with the station, in different scale of course.
The facade reminds the facade of the church of San Bernardino in Perugia, in Umbria region, by the high Renaissance sculptor and architect Agostino di Duccio.

Thank you very much for your comment!
And (late) happy new year!

This is the late gothic church of Santa Maria la Bianca della Misericordia in Casoretto, built between 1472 and 1490, when the tall bell tower (campanile) was built (4th of june 1490). This church is the most remarkable historical landmark in the semiperipherical district of Casoretto, northeastern Milan, near the Lambrate FS train station.

This church was built according to the will of the august 1405 of the noblemen and landowner Pietro tanzi, that owned the suburban area, but the church was started only 70 years later, according the design of an architect of the Solari family, mainly the great Guiniforte Solari. This is clear comparing for example the facade and the external structure of this church with other buildings from Guiniforte Solari in Milan, like the Santa Maria alla Pace church, the San Pietro in Gessate church or also the famous Santa Maria alle Grazie chuch (the gothic part). Guiniforte Solari is also famous for his masterpiece, the Pavia Charterhouse.

The name, Santa Maria la Bianca (Saint Mary the White) takes its name from the fresco painted on the inside of the church.

During the Sforza dynasty, the church lived its golden age: it obtained a large library and some 30 friars lived there. In 1566, it also obtained the title of Abbey. Today, infact, it's also known as the "abbey of Casoretto" (Casoretto Abbey). Around the half of 1500s it was modified from its original gothic style maybe from the architect Pellegrino Tibaldi.

On the first chapel on the right, the artistical masterpiece of the church, the early Renaissance triptych from Antonio da Fossano, better known as
the Bergognone, or probably his pupil Ambrogio Bevilacqua. The triptych depicts the Resurrection of Christ between Saint John the Baptist and Saint John the Evangelist, and it has been painted around 1480. This triptych is a donation of Giovanni Melzi, a very influend member at the Court of the Sforza. Giovanni Melzi and his wife are buried here at the Casoretto Abbey.

The Santa Maria la Bianca late Gothic fresco. The church is named after the white dress of this Virgin Mary.
This ancient fresco has been attributed to a young Pisanello or one of his pupils, but it can be even a painter of the Zavattari family. See the Chapel of Theodelinda in Monza Cathedral to compare the late gothic/earliest Renaissance style.

Hi tommolo, I want to thank you for this thread. I love the many pictures of the churches, they make me want to go to Italy at once to visit them and to revisit the churches I have already seen (some contain so much art that they are museums in themselves, how can you ever tire of them?).

But the reason for this post are the churches of Spirito Maria Chiappetta, an architect of whom I never had heard before. I want to thank you for posting pictures of some of his works. I like the way he bends his inspiration in late gothic German churches into something completely personal. Alas there is not much information about him on the internet other then an article on the Italian Wikipedia, which has only a partial list of his works. Do you have more information or are there any books about him?

The next time I'm in Italy I want definitely visit these churches:

Lovere - Santuario Suore di Maria Bambina
Vigevano - Santuario Madonna di Pompei
Milano - San Camillo de Lellis
Pozzuolo Martesana - San Marco (I'm not sure if this one is a Chiappetta church, but it seems likely)

Others churches seem less spectacular than these four, like the one in Tortona, and some are simple village churches. Do you know of other beautiful churches by him?

Hi Joost! Welcome!

I'm sooo glad when I receive positive feedbacks from this thread you can't even imagine!
To hear that I made you know and appreciate the figure of Spirito Maria Chiappetta's works really makes me happy!
He was a sort of a "hidden genius" that worked with a certain degree of freedom in church design in all Milanese diocesis and the nearby zone under the milanese influence.
All in all his style was too personal to be inscribed into an academically accepted style. He was ecleptic, he was more into a "Trubadour", romantic idea of neo-gothic rather than a philological one as was the fashon of its time, when northern Italy was dominated by perfect and harmonically flawless neo-romanesque and neo-gothic buildings. He played with twisted proportions, the columns were almost decorative objects that have no structural purpose, they were there, in many case, just to make the vault fly like the sails under a heavy storm. In his church design, the columns, often, had no capitels of plinths, no classical orders, and they were drammatically pushed from the vault into the ground, not the classical, other way round, where the columns were used to lift the vault. There is a sort of "out of the place", "out of its time" alien and poetic charm about all of his lifelong church design. he surely was building this awkward structure for his own and no one else. He was as solipsist as a Gaudý or an Antonelli, yet with a much smaller budget. His gothic, and I purposedly call it not a neo-gothic because his soul was truly anchored into a tolkenian, epic middle ages of his own, dealt much more with the mannerist concept of "pushing the envelope" and reach the extreme consequences starting from the gothics premises as the pointed arch, the crossing vault, the verticality of the nave and the stained glass windows.

You mentioned the romantic German gothic, I see reference for example to karl Friederich Schinkel, but Spirito Maria had also an anglo-saxon reference in the troubadour-like literature and epic inspiration from british neogothic castle designer to me...his church can be sooo "Tolkenian" sometimes...

In Milan, you can easily visit the Istituto Vittoria Colonna, an english style, tudor like school, very close to the Santa Maria alla Passione church (just to let you visit a church-art gallery, here you can find a Last Supper of Gaudenzio Ferrari that would be a must see in many world class art museums!)

In Milan there is also the Santa Maria del Buon Consiglio church in the Bovisa district, north Milan.

There is also the church in Tergasio, northern part of Milan, near Triuggio, the church of Santi Gervasio e Protasio. Beside of it there is also a wonderful neoclassical Rotunda from the architectonical genius of Cagnola.

The Sanctuary of Santa Valeria in Seregno is one of his best and biggest achievement to me, easy to access woth the suburban "S" train line.

In Desio, very close to the amazing neoclassical villa of Tittoni Traversi, one of the finest suburban Villa around Milan, you can find a small jewel, very little but...cute I dare to say, the Santuario del Santo Crocifisso. Its facade is very similar to the one of the Santa maria del Buon consiglio in Bovisa, it must be from the same period of Spirito Maria maybe?

The tortona Sanctuary is well worth a visit too, even if it's quite far from Milan, but yet very easy to reach with train.

There is the church of the Beata Vergine assunta in Concesa, in Trezzo d'Adda too that is quite traditional tho, and the facade, beautifully elegant yet unfinished, of the Santa Maria del Suffragio in central Milan, very close to the Milan Courthose building. Anyway the interiors, rich of modern art, frescoes and mosaics, are in a very classical neo-romanesque style, far from the Spirito Maria eccentricity.

Hi tommolo, thank you for your swift reply.

The Santuario della Madonna di Santa Valeria in Seregni is definitely on my list of must see churches. It is also a good example of Chiappetta's love for German gothic churches like this one: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/F...C3%B6lbe_3.JPG
The same geometric, decorative vaulting and pillars without capitals. Yet Chiappetta's church seems unmistakebly Italian, even if Italy lacks this kind of gothic architecture. But it is in the first place a Chiappetta work, an individual work of art.
I love architecture which is idiosyncratic and in which the elements merge into each other into a organic ensemble, that is why I love late gothic architecture, baroque and art nouveau. And of the last two styles there is so much good stuf in and around Milan, I envy you living there.

With Chiappetta I have found a new interesting artist. A shame there is little to be found about him. Some art historian awaits an important task. Maybe there should be a thread for him (I'm not trying to push you ).

I've found some other projects in which he was involved, but his role in them is unclear and limited:

Basilica di Sant'Antonio Abate e Santa Francesca Cabrini in Sant'Angelo Lodigiano, which also contains work of the painter Pasquale Arzuffi, who als worked with Chiappetta in Lovere, which raises the question if there was a group of trusted artists with whom he worked.

Basilica di San Rita in Cascia, but with mediocre decorations

Madonna del Rosario in Pompei, with beautiful decorations in the choir. The choir, side naves and cupola are the work of Chiappetta.

He also build a lot in the Marche, but they seem mainly small, simple village churches, though I can find very little about them.

Hi! Sorry for the lack of answers!

Yes, someone has to dig much more into Spirito Maria Chiappetta's legacy...
In Italy we have some example of german gothic buildings in north-eastern Italy, around the Dolomites, where german speaking popolations migrated from Bavaria to what is now called Sudtirol (Alto Adige in italian). They brought direct Bavarian architectural model there, but actually is very unlikely that Chiappetta may have been inspired from that, for what we know right now...

The Santa Rita da Cascia basilica I totally agree, awful decorations, and also the external looking is leaning towards a cold, unpersonal art deco and squared lines (we're in 1937, while the decorations have been accomplished after WWII).

A small church that is almost never open, since is (was, until november 2017) run by cloistered nuns: the Santa Maria della Visitazione church!

Built in 1713 by the architect Bernardo Quarantini, the facade was added in the early XIX century by the neoclassical architect Giacomo Moraglia.

The frescoes on the interiors depict saints linked to the congregation and have been painted by Valentini in the year 1894.

The external portal:

20180324_171903 by 04bc40240a2368c44cd1c20b632e705d, su Flickr

After the portal, you find a little courtyard in front of the church:

The wonderful pulprit:

The big altarpiece painting, made by the venetian Giambattista Pittoni in 1734.

The counterfacade, with an organ created in the year 1806 (!!!) by the Bernasconi family from Varese, one of the big firm in Organ making back then.

20180324_170753 by 04bc40240a2368c44cd1c20b632e705d, su Flickr

Pittoni's wonderful altarpiece:

20180324_170809 by 04bc40240a2368c44cd1c20b632e705d, su Flickr

The stunning altar, made with polychrome marbles. A wonder of the so-called "Ars Sacra", no doubt. It was taken from a demolished Franciscan monastery and relocated here in the year 1787. Since the beginning, this monastery was dedicated to host "upper class nuns", and this is the reason you see very exclusive furniture and decorations.

Another altarpiece, in a side altar this time. This is a painting by Gianbattista Sassi (painted in year 1752):

The window on the side of the altar that open in the nun's choir. As you can see, the nun's choir is not right behind the altar, but in a vaulted "chapel" perpendicular to the main nave.

The palatine chapel of the Bishop's palace of Milan, just beside the Duomo cathedral.
This chapel was built around the year 1569 and designed in Mannerist style by the great architect Pellegrino Tibaldi, who has worked in the transformation of the Palace from the original Gothic-Early Renaissance building to a more mature Mannerist style. His monumental courtyard of this Palace is absolutely astonishing.

Here you are the Palatine Chapel:
