Santa Maria al Paradiso (Milan)


Santa Maria al Paradiso (Milan)

Chiesa di Santa Maria al Paradiso is a church in Milan, Italy. It was begun in 1590 for the Third Order of Saint Francis, after designs by Martino Bassi.[1][2] The facade, however, was only added in 1897 in a Neo-Baroque style by the architect Ernesto Pirovano (1866-1934).

The interior of the church maintains some of its original decoration, including medallions and stucco depicting scenes from the life of Mary, including The Assumption in the central nave by Antonio Brunelli.
