I wandered in and was amazed by the beauty and living feel of the church. Mass was in session. Silenzio please. The historical layers of artistry are a feast for the senses. It's different.. not museum or display-like... it's living.

The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
