A few steps away from the Duomo, a little retreat from Via Torino, this church built in 1478 is a masterpiece of sacred Renaissance architecture. It kept its christian origin only the remains of the chapel of the Pietà, referring to similar monuments in Armenian style. Bramante was responsible for its reconstruction. His intervention left us a famous trompe-the eye creating, according to a refined game of contrasts, the apse of the church. Despite the little space (97 cm deep), the famous architect succeeded in creating the illusion of depth admirably and surprisingly. The baptistery, a octagonal form, is also the work of Bramante while the facade was redone in the th century. The steeple, dating back to the th century, is considered a very beautiful example of a Romanesque-Lombard style.
