San Michele Sanctuary

The unfinished church of San Michele, an interesting example of Baroque architecture of Lombardy, was planned during the late 17th century by arch. Attilio Arrigoni (1640-1704), one of the main planners from Milan between the 17th and 18th century: he planned Palazzo Sormani (today seat of the Municipal Library of Milan) and the Church of San Michele ai Sepolcri in Milan (the cemetery of Ospedale Maggiore), better known as Rotonda della Besana.
It was begun - but not finished - in the second half of the 18th century, representing an example of Baroque architecture of Lombardy. Within the complete landscape requalification of the area, some interventions have been started in order to prevent the degradation of the church.
