  • When you're strolling along Corso Venezia, take a time to admire this astonishing doorway, made in a trully sensational style. Too bad the burden of time made its mark.  more »

  • A radiance, unused and seldom (only partly) accessible: worth ... seize the opportunities! A battered baroque portal (which must have been magnificent!) allows access to the first courtyard from which you enter the underground car park and then to the long, narrow passage that opens the impressive courtyard of square plan (56 m), with double porch in twin columns and architraves, under whose vaults were able to stroll into the 2002 seminarians and their teachers: a beauty that you can enjoy only during Salonedelmobile/milandesignweek/Fuorisalone when it was the scene of spectacular installations of Audi. I haven't had a chance to climb the staircase or accessing large vaulted halls of this building designed by Vincenzo Seregni, created initially by Pellegrino Tibaldi to host the seminar wanted by Archbishop Carlo Borromeo (who inaugurated it in 1564), which – from official descriptions – they seem to be very beautiful. I enjoyed, however, the yard, made (along with the East Wing of the building) between 1602 and 1611-under Archbishop Federico Borromeo-Aurelio Trezzi work and Fabio Mangone: a re-exciting discovery. I hope this building, that the Curia is unable to maintain and whose assignment seems to be conducting negotiations, could revert to the splendors of the past: he deserves it! NB. To complete the information: the portal with the caryatids and motto Humilitas angiolino Stella was created from designs by Francesco Maria Richini in 1635.
