The building was built atop the site of the former Frigidarium of the Terme Erculee (Herculean Baths) of Milan. It was erected after 1621, with designs by Giovanni Pietro Orobono; the portal was designed instead by Genovesino in 1626-1627. After World War II, targeted demolitions have recreated a small pasture or Pasquirolo after which the site was named. After being closed for decades, the church has been recently restored and reopened by 2015 celebrating the Orthodox rite.
The façade is in the Baroque style it is divided into two horizontal bands culminating at the top by a triangular pediment. The portal, at the center of the lower end, has a small porch with pediment supported by columns. The interior, with a nave with side chapels, decorated with elegant simplicity with stucco and frescoes (the latter in poor condition, as restored) by the brothers Fiammenghini.
San Vito in Pasquirolo Church Reviews
This is truly an underwhelming church, both inside and out. Its proximity to the gigantic Milan cathedral makes it look even smaller than it really is. Still, not really worth visiting. more »
This is the Polish Church in Milan
Small but cute church of San Vito is at the moment hosting the Russian Orthodox Church. It is a special place of the Russian, but in general, orthodox community. They are every day services while the biggest ones are each Sunday and on special days (Christmass, Easter, etc.). It is very nice to attend some of the Sunday's "liturgija" (service) as people are friendly and warm and accept you to be a part of it. Would recommend visiting it in order to experience a different side of Milan.
