  • This church looks very old and impressive

The idea of a great sanctuary was translated during the 16th century into a project by Jerome Quadrio, then architect of the factory of the Cathedral of Milan. Only during the last war was the sober facade in front of the old one completed, left to the rustic for the suspension of the construction site.
