San Maurizio Milan Reviews
San Maurizio - A Renaissance masterpiece Nov 04, 2011
This is a beautiful Renaissance church, next to a monastery and situated along the Corso Magenta, the street that leads up to the Santa Maria delle Grazie (Last Supper).
The church is decorated with splendid 16th century frescoes, mainly by Luini, very recently restored (2010). Highly recommended.
the Cappella Simonetta with the Deposizione di Cristo by Callisto Piazza
the Adorazione dei Magi by Antonio Campi
the 16th century organ in the Capella Simonetta
the Cappella Besozzi: fresco of the decapitation of Saint Catherine
the dividing wall, attributed to Luini
There is a virtual tour at the MilanArounder website (flash player required).
Part of the former monastery is now taken up by the Museo Archeologico.
Each year in spring a cycle of concerts is held in the church, the Musica e Poesia a San Maurizio.
Not accessible for the disabled (7 steps).
