  • With its façade a bit rough brick Baroque (only decoration a locket with an Angel above the Portal) the Church is enclosed in a building very similar, with rough brick façade-Palazzo Fagnani Ronzoni (looking at the façade, right)-and a home d He 1920s, Talbot House (looking at the front, left), an interesting example of the art deco: one of the usual contrasts in Milan! The Church has a controversial name on whose origin circulate different hypotheses: Saint Matthew the Wand – according to historians – or Feasts – according to tradition; the name "wand" might be short for "tour" with reference to St Matthew's profession or those who had built as a family Chapel already in the 11th century (the Faber, first merchants and then bankers); but for some the "banchetta" underlined the fact that, next to the Church, was placed a stone bench available for tired wanderers just came into town. What's behind the façade – all in all pretty – it is not known with certainty, since the Church is not open to the public. I wonder if she's still as in the 18th century and still contains the table of Francesco Vicentino (who was he?) with "the calling of Matthew" or "Depot" (will be the mortal remains?) of the founder mentioned by the historian Serviliano Latuada?
