Many famous and successful people have had a connection with the church. Mozart stayed in the monastery of the church for a few months and the anniversary of Milanese writer Alessandro Manzoni was recognized here.
Within the church, there are statues, mosaics, and sculptures. Many were restored by Carlo Maciachini in the 19th century, including the famous bell tower. A short visit to this hidden treasure is definitely recommended!
