About
Next to Milan's Central Station, at the beginning of Viale Andrea Doria, are the remains of the Cascina Pozzonbelli. The complex was built in 1498 in a Lombard, Renaissance style, probably on an ancient monastic building from the Congregazione degli Umiliati, which was bought and transformed into a home for the Pozzonbelli, a Milanese noble family. Behind an elegant portico with rounded arches on columns are a small oratory and the remains of a complex which was once much larger. Mostly destroyed in 1907, the chapel still features remains of a fresco and the elegant portico vaults.

Neighbourhood: Stazione Centrale
Central Station represents a bridge towards the future. Impressive skyscrapers and new age buildings stretch the skyline with the majestic Unicredit Tower cutting through. Surrounding it are large towers that define Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the fountain and the Monumento Trombe leave one breathless. A famous building of the district is the Vertical Forest, where the innovative materials and trees planted on the terraces are a unique mix of nature and man-made construction. In the district, there is the Monumental Cemetery, known for its antique tombs with sculptures portraying angels of commemorative scenes many will find touching.

Unfortunate the place is not more well kept nor allowing visits - but having a hour of time to walk about in this area it was a nice stop over

Happened upon this by accident and almost walked past because it was dwarfed by some swanky hotels but it looks cool. Don't know if you can get into it or not.
